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 Bayesian average rating of 86.3/100, a mean average of 85.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.9.

This album presents Mingus' attempt to create Jazz the same way classical music is usually composed: through pen and paper. The results are very interesting and the performances are amazing.

This was my introduction to Mingus, and the best way I can describe it is as a straight 9/10 from top to bottom. No track is Mingus' most brilliant stuff, and yet every track is REALLY good!

You can feel the heat through the arrangements and the notes. It's really heavy for a jazz album, as it composed by the angry man of jazz himself. a MASTERPIECE no matter what genre you're into. 100/100

This does for me what the two other sacred beasts - A Love Supreme and Kind of Blue - don't.

One of my favorite jazz records of the sixtees, and certainly one of Mingus's best! My favorite is 'Duet Solo Dancers'. An absolute masterpiece!

A turning point in jazz. Probably the loudest album of 1963.
