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 90.1/100, a mean average of 89.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Incredible how he made Hunky Dory and The Rise of Ziggy Stardust in less than a year. Such an impressive and influential artist, and this is his best work: brilliant from the start to the end.

One of the very best of all-time, can't think of many albums that keep such a consistent extremely high level of quality throughout, no words can truly describe how huge of an achievement this album is.
