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 mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.7.

"Kenya" by Machito is an Afro-Cuban jazz classic featuring the rhythms of congas and bongos with great trumpet solo work by Doc Cheatham, Joe Livramento and Joe Newman. Love this record!

Best tracks: Congo Mulence, Conversation, Tururato.

Fantastic. Afro-cuban jazz from the 1950s for the win.

Fantastic record from the big band era. If you like salsa, you'll dig this.
