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 Bayesian average rating of 79.2/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 18.2.

I don't think that this list particulary mirrors the sheer beauty that Radiohead created with their music.

Extremely generic and predictable, but not in a bad way. No real big surprises, especially in the top 50, but that's to be expected. A good list!

Overall a pretty decent list although "The Bends" is not the 2nd best album of all time. 102nd maybe..
