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 8% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.1/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

An undiscovered gem. A sweeping, symphonic masterpiece. This is not the Focus of Sylvia or Hocus Pocus but a more highbrow and elegiac work (although there is still a bit of yodelling)

This is a little known musical masterpiece from the 1970's - one of my all time favourite albums. Sits easily alongside Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, OK Computer, Selling England by the Pound etc. Why isn't it better known?....
