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 is rated in the top 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.3.

My favorite band of all time. They really captured my imagination when I was younger, with all those romantic and beautiful musical journeys through lands of dark fairy tales and Greek mythology. As a three piece they changed their approach a bit, but they still rocked and were extremely creative!

The greatest band of all time. I like their earlier work the most, but they kept reinventing themselves and putting out new and exciting stuff all throughout their career. I can't overstate how much I have enjoyed listening to their music.

The Peter Gabriel era Genesis is probably the best progressive rock band. It's sad that they later became the horrible pop band that the general public knows them as.
