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 63.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 62.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 24.1.

Interesting chart i find it very different to the RS 500. But there are good choices, but i say that Number 1 is not the greatest album i would say The Beatles made the best album of all time.

I don´t like the ranking that much, but even I have to admit that it has a couple of surprises.

Different Class and Let England Shake being as high as they are a classic case of "Good, but not THAT good", plus the NME's love affair with the Arctic Monkeys was always slightly over-the-top.

Pretty much the hipster chart. Not bad, but definitely not an objective chart

"Different Class" is 500 ranks too high in this list. And the rest also needs a better order.

I feel like NME decided to draw album names out of a hat for their order of these albums. They are all great albums, but the listing is all over the place.
