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 82.0/100, a mean average of 81.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

The two last tracks are hard to find without having to pay ... but are one of the precious things in the universe

Anyone who completes this deserves a medal. I guess what I'm really trying to say is that I deserve a medal for finishing this, though the experience of the album's glorious solemnity, and modest brilliance are reward enough. I look forward to future pilgrimages.

There's something really affecting in this. May be overly repetitive for some but it's strangely sad hearing these loops falling apart before your very ears. Not to be overly Buddhist and pretentious, but it's a great reminder of impermanence.

This is ranked below Avenged Sevenfold? That's stupid.
