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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 70.5/100, a mean average of 67.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 67.9/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.4.

Thy understood something in the magical 1982, understood it mich better than most and felt guilty. Their self destruction was not a lame predictable post punk gesture. When they wanted to take part again they became thin classicists.I'll be grateful for the Lexicon of Love maybe forever. It was like punk to me while the "real punk" had died.

A good pop band but like so many of the 80's groups failed to move on and evolve

Great new wave/pop band. Very danceable, very upbeat, and very addictive. There's no messages about world poverty, no political statements, no studio wizardry...just good, solid pop music for pop music's sake. It is what it is. It's a perfectly crafted pop band.
