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 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 83.6/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.2.

Their melodies make absolutely no sense and I love it
Also they are groovy as hell
Definitely the most "progressive" of the prog bands in the 70s

I don't get how this guys aren't higher in the rankings. One of the best of the classic prog bands.

Diverse and intriguing, Gentle Giant were one of the highlights of mid-70s prog.

For people who can stand prog and who love vocal harmonies this is the band.
