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 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.7/100, a mean average of 73.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

Amazing! It’s clear the Doors took a lot of their sound from this. Personally, I prefer Booker T.

The title track is of course a total classic, but there are plenty of other enjoyable tunes here. A brilliantly atmospheric record.

I'm not all that into instrumental albums, but this is a really fun, light hearted record.
