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 66.2/100, a mean average of 63.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 64.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 23.2.

Good list, no need for the Pixies to be higher than the bottom 400 tho.

Isn't this supposed to be the best 500? Why is there only 100 in the list?

Not sure why all the hate, this list has some of the best picks from the 1980s and 1990s, even some classics from the 2000s. Still, I understand some of the reactions because it is a bit wack in some places.

A big no on this one. Some nice props to Public Enemy and Wutang, but this must've been made by someone who listens to a lot of radio.

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.
