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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.2/100, a mean average of 75.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.1.

Essential album from an era of great British bands and music. Cool for cats, is full of fantastic songs, especially, up the junction, and the title track, but there's plenty of other wonderful tracks here. Classic stuff.

Insanely catchy bunch of songs by a group coming into their zone. Slightly Drunk -> Goodbye Girl -> Cool For Cats is one hell of a sequence to end the record.
