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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.6/100, a mean average of 77.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.6.

A gorgeous record full of lovely heartbreaking songs. You just simply cannot fail to be moved by this album. This is a record full of love, hope, regret and sadness. Be at peace with yourself, and, the coast no man can tell, are two of the most achingly beautiful songs I have ever heard. Extremely moving stuff.

An amazing backstory. Recorded albums in 1970 and 1971 and was released from the lael. This is his first album of new material since 1971 and it is inspiring.
