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 mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 87.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

Could be the best album ever made,perfect from start to finish and surprised it's not rated higher, the Doors were dark brooding and alienated perfectly boosted with a touch of 'Howlin wolf and Brecht means this masterpiece is full of undiluted tension.

Not as strong as L.A. Woman, but an incredibly consistent record with a wonderful atmosphere/style. Highlights would be: "Take it As it Comes", "Light My Fire", "Back Door Man", and "End of the Night".
