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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

It swings like jazz, wails like blues, and has a funky groove. This album was way ahead of its time and remains at the top of the jazz heap as well as the guitar heap for any genre. Burell's absolutely masterful technique is on display throughout as well. Absolutely faultless.

If smokey late night grooviness is needed, there is nothing better than this.
