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 80.5/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

There's some great music and some great lyrics on here. Not much I can really say against it.

The interrogation lasted 24 hours, and yet no matter what they tried, he would not crack.

Opened my ears to a whole new world of music, that I was yet to really explore. Epic.

If this is indeed the last album Fugazi will ever record, they can be proud with the knowledge that they saved the best for last.
