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 78.2/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.5/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.0.

Don`t agree with all of it, but it`s still a good list. Nick Cave is worthy of your favourable opinion.

Good chart, but the Song Remains the Same is nowhere near as good as other LZ albums.

Good chart. I will call back when it is complete. No More Shall We Part is highly rated by my wife, but I prefer other albums by the great Nick Cave.

Promising. Great to see Nick Cave on top. What about "The Boatmans Call" by the same genius?
