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 Bayesian average rating of 82.1/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.4.

This is the greatest band you have never heard of. As many virtuosos as King Crimson, as tuneful as the best of Genesis.

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.
