I wonder how the average rating was calculated for this Jaga Jazzist's album? Shouldn't it be more like 4.67?

Isn't this what you get when ratings are deleted

I do not really know .. but, even if this is the case, shouldn't the "system" recalculate the average, based on the remaining ratings? I know for a fact it recalculated when a rating is changed

I think it will re-calculate once a new review/rating is submitted.

Great to see it back to it's rightful and, IMO, fully deserved average rating. Thumbs Up

^ Indeed so. 

Now, there is another issue with this release that needs attention. I can't believe that only 6 (six!) PA folks voted, and only one (myself) bothered to put together a review for this fantastic album.  

On Discogs, the Live with Britten Sinfonia scored 20 votes, averaging @ 4.75 

On Amazon, it received 4 reviews; all of them are 5-star.

I wonder if there is anything we could do to bring this album into the spotlight?

The principles behind the calculation of an average rating are explained at the top of a ranking list (such as the top 100 of 2013, click here).

The current average rating for this album is 4.87 (6 ratings of which one is accompanied by a non-collab review):

1 5-star review with a weight of 10: 50
3 other 5-star ratings.............: 15
2 4-star ratings...................:  8
  Total............................: 73

The average rating is 73 / 15 = 4.87.

^ Yup, the average rating is correct now, thanks to Argonaught changing his rating twice to get it to re-calculate after some low ratings had been deleted.

Yeah, that's not many. I've been planning to review it for quite some time myself, but never gotten around to it. Perhaps I'll just have to make it a priority.
