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 77.6/100, a mean average of 71.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.1/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 20.6.

A reasonable chart, peppered with the usual and unusual WTF entries, (Ed Sh**ran for example).

Adele and Meat Loaf in the top 5 is pretty comical. Also... why do people like Oasis so much
