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 Bayesian average rating of 84.2/100, a mean average of 83.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

A true Coltrane classic! 'I'm Old Fashioned' and 'Moment's Notice' are some highlights here. A really great album, and one of my favorites of Coltrane.

While A Love Supreme gets all the attention (a giant album), Blue Train is a classic in its own right.

Find it really hard to choose between this and Love Supreme as JC's greatest album. Right this minute, this is slightly ahead but that might change tomorrow. Both great, great albums
