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 Bayesian average rating of 77.9/100, a mean average of 82.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.8.

If this sounds older than 1986, that's because it is. This recording inexplicably sat in the vault almost two decades before being released. It is easily one of the finest examples of post-bop, experimental jazz. Often atonal, but more listenable than Coleman or Ayler at their most far out, this album strikes a perfect balance between challenging and appealing to the ear. Brilliant.
