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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.2/100, a mean average of 70.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

Herbie Hancock is jazz music and this record is absolutely not, in the strict sense .... At the same time Miles Davis test funk and it is my sense that jazz starts and the electronic rap ... it's herbie Hancock disc UFO and then move to more things ... analog .... this disc represents the end of the underground for rap and electronica and switching to ground. And now the rap, as electronic music are naturally present in all ears! is this good, what is evil? this is not the issue, it is a fact! and you take what you like.
