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 1% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 92.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 92.2/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 10.0.

Nice chart! Good to see Luxury Liner there. And I agree about your comments on the Dillard and Clark album, it’s really a masterpiece!

Very cool that you have Sweet Tea rated so highly, I truly believe this is the greatest blues album so far in the 21st century. Will check out some of your other top choices I haven't listened to yet...

8 blues albums in the top 10? That's a bold strategy Cotton.

I feel like doing that sometimes though. I'd definitely have Mississippi John Hurt in my Top 5 as well.

Edit: this comment is no longer valid, but I'll keep my score the same.

Yeah. This chart keeps getting better with age. Love the new editions. Will have to check out Dillard & Clark. Heard great stuff about them. Peace, brother!
