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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Uno de los mejores directos de la historia.
El trabajo a la guitarra de Uli es excepcional, sonando muy Hendrix.
El arranque del disco es brutal y hay varios temas memorables.
Primero vi a Scorpions en directo y meses después a Uli. Entonces entendí porque no tocaban temas de la primera época de Scorpions. Respuesta sencilla: Uli es estratosférico. Jabs no llega a la suela de sus zapatos.

Uli Jon Roth is arguably the most underrated shredder in the history of guitar playing. Horribly underrated. Let me put it this way: If you like Jimi Hendrix, you'll like Roth. And if you don't like Hendrix, you're an idiot.

One of the greatest live albums of all times. Up there with 'Made in Japan', really. This is a rare case where most of live renditions outperform studio counterparts. Why they never recorded 'All Night Long' in studio is beyond me. 'We'll Burn The Sky' specially shines here.
