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 77.3/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

Still need to think about this a little longer but yeah, I feel like this might be a 10. It's literally perfect from beginning to end. The production was spotless, not a single song was too long, and Mos's rhymes were just on another level. Music is supposed to move you right? Well this shit sent me to another planet.

Oh, and the Slick Rick feature was great too.
