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 80.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

I almost don't notice I'm listening something. This artist really has the least dynamic sound I've ever heard.

Having heard great things about this album I was excited to check it out, unfortunately I came away disappointed. I just could not get into it .Maybe I need to have another listen or 2 ? I really like Shields and their 2017 release Painted Ruins & recommend both albums.

One of the tightest albums I've listened to. Splendid production.

A great album that loses a bit of force at the middle, but goes back on top later with Ready, Able.

Powerful beginning, loses a bit of rhythm in Dory, gets back at top with Ready, Able and then finishes pretty well.
Without a couple of tracks would easily be considered the best album for 2009.

This album is totally exuberant; pitting together Baroque, Psych Folk and Chamber Pop to create something of complete beauty. It took me awhile to come around on it but now I'm obsessed with it.
