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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

I love show tunes and this album has a handful of spectacular ones. "Maria" "America" "Tonight""I Feel Pretty" and "Somewhere". The last song was even the song of my graduating class!

I guess some of this acclaimed modern classical stuff just doesn't speak to me like Wagner, Mozart, etc...
