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 mean average rating of 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

The Who's masterpiece still stands as monolithic as the album cover. The songwriting is phenomenal, with hard rock and synthesizer combined years ahead of their contemporaries as well
