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 4% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.8.

This album really introduced me to the dept of Aesop Rock's lyrics as I spent a good part of 2017's summer trying to understand this album's lyrics. Incredibly addictive album.

Absolute classic, can't believe this is so low on the 2016 chart. His voice, flow, lyrics, concepts, beats! Way too good, the fact that Aesop can put out what might be his best album yet this late shows his staying power.
