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 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.2/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 12.6.

Dead Kennedy's I used to love them what a great choice. Tom Waits can't be disputed a genius

Definitely made me raise my eyebrows a few times. I love Tom Waits, so that was nice to see! Surprised to see Frankenchrist in your top 10 (ahead of Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables), but it is definitely an overlooked album.
