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 charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a mean average rating of 92.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 92.6/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 7.8.

Sixteen artists plus composer Messiaen in common with my own – and I have been meaning to check out ‘Ewa Demarczyk Śpiewa Piosenki Zygmunta Koniecznego’ for some time since buying it.

I get a feeling this chart lacks the unpredictable touch. Recalling having to add half a dozen albums when making my own chart is significant to me, and there are not that many albums rarely seen on this sort of chart. Very good and varied nonetheless.
