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 23% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 73.8/100, a mean average of 73.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

The title track is a classic, but the rest is very hit-and-miss. Overall, strong performances, but lacking in originality and memorability. 9/10.

The Shape of Jazz' nicer and more disciplined little brother. Every track is a winner.

Pretty much one of the tests for whether you like modern jazz or not. Every received idea/cliche about that most rarefied beast is present here in abundance.
