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 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 15.9.

This album—TNT—is one of the greatest musical experiences out there. By the end of Ten-Day Interval, I feel like I've escaped reality, and from that point on the album leads me from place to place on a beautiful, hypnotic journey that doesn't let up until the last notes fade out on Everglade.

If you have the patience to learn the ins and outs of this album, you will be rewarded with a magical experience unlike any other.

There are too many things to say about Tortoise.
I love their music, the style of production, etc.
One of the most interesting bands alive.

With their rich combination of Steve Reich-style minimilism, dub, electronic music, funk, progressive Canterbury-style jazz-rock and rhythmic experimentation, Tortoise have invented a music that is closer to classical and jazz than rock.
