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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 78.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.5.

Just picked this up on vinyl. I'm a big Elliott Smith fan and this is a really beautiful collection of his work, especially if you're a bigger fan of the softer side of his music!

Tip: go listen to his actual albums ( there are only 6 ) to get the best E.S experience

This compilation is ho-hum IMO , with "Between the Bars" a clear standout . Disappointing with only the 1 track from 'XO' , and no "Miss Misery" rather a rough early version with completely different lyrics which is on 2007's 'New Moon' any way
