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 3% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 89.3/100, a mean average of 92.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.7/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 6.4.

I really can't stand Kanye West.... And no matter how hard I try, I find Good Kid Mad City unpleasant to my ears... BUT your lists are always interesting and look like you've dedicated a decent amount of effort on them.

I admire the symmetry of having exactly ten albums from each year of the 2010s, though I can't imagine ever having the discipline to do that in my own charts. I also appreciate your listing your favorite tracks from the decade. I love Sufjan Stevens, but have never heard "Christmas Unicorn." I'll have to put that on my next Christmas playlist!
