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 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

The best glam rock album I've ever heard, with the exception of Ziggy Stardust. Charismatic, inventive, and fun, everything glam rock should be.

Gli Sparks, soprattutto quelli di "Kimono my house", sono una formazione curiosa e bizzarra. Si potrebbero etichettare come glam, ma sono distanti da quanto comunemente si intende come glam. Sono pop, ma il loro è un pop intelligente, marziale, ironico. La loro musica ha un incedere teutonico, ma non c'entrano niente col Krautrock; spesso sono teatrali ma non vanno mai confusi con certi pagliacci sbruffoni loro coevi. Disco bellissimo e trascinante...

A oddball album from the equally strange Sparks. Kimono my house, obviously features two classic singles in, this town ain't big enough for the both of us, and, amateur hour. The rest, although fine, sound too similar to each other, it all sounds the same. Nothing wrong with the songs, it's just I wish there were a few different sounds on here.
