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 charts can have several thousand ratings)

This chart is rated in the top 4% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 88.5/100, a mean average of 87.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.9/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.8.

Awesome chart. Really dig the variety and choices here. I'll have to take some recommendations from the Finnish albums.

Really like this list! Portishead Third in the top ten, such a great album! Love the addition of Zappa, Royksopp Melody AM, Bjork, Massive Attack, Bob Dylan Desire, Tom Waits and quite the good amount of Jazz fusion stuff nice! Good work. ... Oh and Can!

Great taste. I like how you got so many great seventies albums that I love too. And a few surprises.

This chart is absolutely fantastic... Aphrodite's Child is a name you don't often see here, and a great band. I also love that Piper at the Gates of Dawn is your favorite Floyd album, sometimes I feel alone with that one... Bitches Brew at #4 is great as well, and I like seeing Bjork high up. Overall just a great collection of 70s music with some top notch picks from other decades dispersed throughout. Really good chart, man.
