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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.7/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.6.

A severely underrated album from the 90's. Filled with great songs like the massive rocker "She Said" then kicks off with a meloncholic "On and On". Truly is one of my favorites.

Maybe Britpop's most underrated album. It's a consistent effort with some big choruses. "She Said"and "On and On" were both great singles.

A strange little album that kicks off with four fairly straightforward 'Britpop'-style tracks before (very successfully) taking on a more adventurous / unusual style after that. A track like 'Jesus Christ' might possibly be the best one on here as it kind of fuses the album's two contrasting styles together.
