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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.7/100, a mean average of 75.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

This is quite possibly the greatest live album of all time. Every cut is worthwhile and actually adds something to the original studio cut. Once in a while, a live version becomes the definitive version over the studio version and that is the case for most of the cuts on this album.

This was their biggest album (achieving 1 million sales)and quite the surprised for Arista records. At this point in their career, there wasn't a reason to think that this album would be as big as it turned out to be...usually live albums don't fare as well as their studio counterpart especially since they were not a very big group in the US.
