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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

One of the seminal trans texts. An astonishing work of songwriting and intimate performance whose emotion and hard-won sense of self is overwhelming and triumphant.

Not knowing anything more than you want to know is a great thing when it comes to being able to enjoy an artist. All facts can affect the experience of the music, the book or the painting. Fact about this guy only made it stronger for me. As I recall...

I just finished listening to this and broke out crying at Bird Gurhl. A stunning album that is of course carried by her voice but which has the instrumental diversity to make it consistently interesting. The subjects of the songs are very emotional as well which helps tie the album together.
