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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

A metal classic! By far the best Sabbath album of the Ozzy era.

"Paranoid" is a very good album and also historically very relevant. A pity that the cover does not reach the level of the music. During the entire career of Sabbath, apart from Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, that has always been a weak point.
