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 86.3/100, a mean average of 85.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

This album infurates me, they have one of the best songs of the 70s in Marquee Moon, the title track, but the rest of the album just doesn't capture that same magic.

In my opinion this is the greatest punk record ever recorded. The title track in particular is phenomenal

Sorry, I just don't get it. It's an alright album but I must be missing something as I fail to see why it's rated so highly. There's some great tracks on it but overall just a touch above average.

Marquee Moon wasn't in my parents' record collection when I was growing up, so I never heard it until many years later. This was an album I came to almost entirely because of its ubiquitous presence in greatest-albums-ever lists such as this one (I probably saw it first in a Rolling Stone list), since I never heard it on the radio or had any friends who listened to it. What a great album I was missing. The strength of the songs here lies in the interlacing guitar work of Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd. Sometimes they are perfectly in sync, creating an incredible droning effect, while at other times Lloyd provides the perfect counterpoint to Verlaine, Lloyd's zig to Verlaine's zag. The result is one of the most creative and unique rock albums ever made.

Always shocked to see Marquee Moon in the site's top 50, but I cannot deny my enjoyment of it.
