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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 86.9/100, a mean average of 85.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

One of the greatest rock records ever released. Such a great variety of well executed genres in one record.

Sometimes, I do that classic thought experiment where I think about what double albums could be improved by cutting a few tracks off.

This is the one album I never touch.

A nineteen song album, where every song is totally unique and utterly genius, catchy or both. How do they do it!?
