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 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 72.1/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 15.2.

This is suppose to be all time but yet they have 42% for the 60's and 44% for the 70's... Anyone who loves this pole is clearly biased to these decades. There's plenty of albums as good as these decades worth.

Too routine and lacking any surprises, but at the same time free of most ludicrously overrated records.
