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 Bayesian average rating of 79.1/100, a mean average of 80.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

It's absolutely criminal that "The Lighting of the Beacons" was only included in the extended version of the soundtrack. Otherwise, this condensed version is wonderful. Howard Shore's score was absolutely essential to making the Lord of the Rings trilogy into the epic it became.

If this was the extended version of the album it would be an easy 100. Still great but seriously the extended album for each movie is a masterpiece
