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 mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

A superb album from start to finish, this album has it all, vocal drones, spaces whispers, VCS Synthi bleeps, flute, sax, glissando guitar, ever evolving rhythms and a real variety of music to assault your senses. My favourite tracks are Master Builder, A Sprinkling of Clouds and Perfect Mystery.

Daevid Allen's Gong is an experience every human being should try at least once. So fill your teapot up with tea, and come and take a ride with me!
