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 has a Bayesian average rating of 74.1/100, a mean average of 74.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

MCMXC a.D starts out striking with its whispers and Gregorian chants but never pushes itself beyond the opening ideas.

Very good new-age/ambient house/downtempo/synthpop chillout album. I can't rate it based on rating single tracks. This album is an interrelated artwork. Overall very good 90/100. I recommend the Limited Edition including 4 additional remixes. Favourite!

A delightfully weird album that combines Gregorian Chant, whispered French, and some weird kind of flute that sounds like a duck-dog.

My favorite album of all time! It was ground-breaking, futuristic, and epic. Both the rhythm and the melody are hooky.
