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 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 12.6.

Great chart. I love your #1. Also I secretly hope one of your top dozen albums falls so that 13 by Blur can move up to #13 because that would be sick.

I like seeing a lot of Radiohead and Blur in there. But there's not much variety cause it's only 50. Bring it up to 100 and I'll probably like it more. Have you heard The Magic Whip?

It's a good start but its very heavy on English bands, especially Damon Albarn and Radiohead.

Too much Radiohead, but fine otherwise. "Band on the run" is a nice touch.

I never liked Think Tank. I've given it many tries.

That said, it doesn't spoil this list.
