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 mean average rating of 87.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.5/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 6.8.

Phenomenal for the 80s! I tend to think of the 80s as being pretty sucky music-wise, but this is a good example of how much good stuff there was to listen to then.

Cool chart. The eighties don't suck nearly as bad as most people think. A lot of great albums on your list (45 albums in common with my list).
