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 mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

The best album of 1959 and also the best album of the 50's. An absolute classic amongst many classics to choose from in the 50's.

Its hard to imagine an album better exemplifying its genre than this album. If you're looking for blues, this is as good as it gets.

Unbelievably strong vocals. This album is over 50 years old and still sounds great, which is hard to accomplish. Timeless.
