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 has a mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 23.2.

Outstanding chart! You'll get no argument from me by putting The Stone Roses in your #1 slot--that is an absolutely terrific album. I also really love Doolitte, Surfer Rosa, and Murmur. Up for a Bit with the Pastels is a less familiar top ten pick that I'll have to spend some time with. Thanks for sharing this very exciting chart!

Fantastic. A massive 40 albums in common with you. It can only be a 100/100 rating from me. Well done
