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 10% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 86.6/100, a mean average of 87.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.5.

Very good picks, very classical chart, but Oselju is right:
The chart is pretty predictable and not very personal

Nice chart, though I find your picks a little too focused on the classics. Try some stuff more outside of your comfort zone, you never know you might end up falling in love with!!

Very decent chart! Aerosmith are the only band in your chart that have never quite clicked with me.

I feel like this is trying a little too hard to be objective... I like trying to bring critical acclaim and cultural impact and stuff into the equation, but at some point I just wanna know what you listen to the most, you know?
