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 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

This album is so wonderful, oh my god. I had no idea who Max Roach was (even liking jazz since my childhood), and I finished this album totally impressed. It is so fast-paced yet so meticulous, so angry yet so sensible. My favorite track is "Freedom Day", with the amazing Abbey Lincoln. Recommend!

Best track: Triptych
Worst track: Tears for Johannesburg (still 7/10!)

A really really beautiful but haunting album. Those vocals!!! I feel the pain through the music and it hits a spot that few albums can hit.
