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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Herbie has a few seminal classics, and this is the best of the bunch. The title cut is rightfully one of the all time great jazz epics. The album is enhanced in no small way buy the wonderful trumpet of Freddie Hubbard.

Another nice album from the great Herbie. Nothing I find too challenging or innovative, but a good listen nonetheless

Possibly Herbie Hancock's best 'jazz' album. It's a beautiful run of tunes with the title track my favourite with, dolphin dance, and, survival of the fittest, also highlights. Nice stuff.

Breezy beauty, truly a maiden voyage (or a voyage of maidens). With a similar spirit to Kind of Blue, but going further, with even higher highs.
