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 is rated in the top 14% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 86.4/100, a mean average of 86.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.2.

Very unique and interesting chart. Well done! Was not aware Mark Hollis had a solo album until now. Going to have to check that out.

Really great mix of records, not a single weak album in sight. For a higher score from me, some notes as to why these are your favourite records would be the cherry on the cake! Side note - just wondering why there's no hip hop/jazz in the chart, is it not really your rag or have you placed them in a separate chart? Look forward to checking back here!

nice choices not always to my taste but variety is a good thing, I own 60 of your 100, I however just don't rate them all as highly as you do but a good read none the less.
