Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.9/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

The plethora of music from hundreds of different countries outside the western-world tends to get clumped into a single "World" genre which is incredibly trivialising and in all honesty really, really stupid. These records tend to be incredibly underrated in the western-world, especially in comparison to rock music from white british / american men (perhaps a few records from Africa and Asia will be picked out and be called "good for world music"). Here's the very best antidote to this bias.

These ragas are complex, mesmerising and sound truly timeless. This is an unbelievably beautiful record and as a person of (mostly) ethnically Indian origin yet living in england, "Music of India" is incredibly important to me. It is a statement that resonates with me and also broke cultural and geographical barriers in its day. Ravi Shankar is the virtuoso of all virtuosos.
