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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Elvis Presley's second album is obviously nowhere near as significant or important as his first, but it is a more consistent record. Some great rock'n'roll classics sung with gusto serve to make this a thoroughly enjoyable album. Elvis at his early best.

Released the same year as his higher ranked album... feels a bit like a b-sides album/rejects from recording the other album. Still alright, but rightfully not as highly ranked.

You can really hear the early energy of a young Elvis. This explains why he remains a cultural icon.
