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 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 17.5.

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!

This is the opinion of 200,000 people, so not really a bad poll, I guess.

Actually a really good list. I'm not complaining about Bends at #2. Love that album, good to see it as the victor over OK Computer. I don't know which one I myself would place higher, they're each so good, I might end up leaning towards OK though.

Again, The Bends at #2 is a beautiful sight!
