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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.6/100, a mean average of 80.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.4.

A decent comp, but for my money, the "Experience Hendrix" compilation is the one to get.

The track listing for this is completely up the spout. The original UK issue maintains a much more bluesy feel, omitting amongst others ...Watchtower, Remember and Crosstown Traffic and adding Highway Chile, ...Midnight Lamp and a couple of B-sides. For this reason it's worth having as there's a fair bit on this compy that aren't on the original LPs. To rate it 0 or 5/100 is just ludicrous.
