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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.7/100, a mean average of 74.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.9.

The most epic "comeback" album ever. Five years is a long time in pop music.

Overall: 8.7

Top Tracks: "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Man in the Mirror", "Smooth Criminal"

It's not Thriller, and some of it is a bit questionable, but it's still the King of Pop.

Tinha o peso de substituir o Thriller e brilhou com cinco músicas no primeiro lugar da parada de sucessos. Mais um marco para o rei!

Great follow-up to Thriller, full of great tracks, not too fond of the title track though. Speed Demon and Just Good Friends are just average.
