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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.3/100, a mean average of 77.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

This album is 10/10 from a Christmas view. If I wasn't listening to this album near Christmas time, I'll probably give this album a 7/10 or 8/10.

Considered one of the best Christmas albums of all time. A great representation of Phil Spector's Wall of Sound.

I found this album very disappointing. The vocals are way overdone in most of the songs, and even at low volumes the whole thing sounds annoyingly loud.
