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 78.3/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

This is one of the non-European or US-originated albums. Just so magnificent change after listening dozens of basic rock albums. BMW !

Una sequenza di grandi canzoni tra cui ovviamente svettano i due pezzi da novanta "Get up, stand up" e "I shot the sheriff"

Another of the great 'island' albums from Bob Marley and the Wailers. Great tracks in, get up,stand up, pad it on, and off course, I shot the sheriff, one of Marley's greatest songs. All of it is essential really.

Righteous and seriously in the pocket, this is the last Wailers album with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. Bob Marley's soulful cry is rivaled by the sticky organ riffs and fat-bottom beats.

Still a band effort before Marley's putsch.

Marley's 3rd best. This is a titanic album. Seems to have a harder edge lyrically than his other work.
