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 artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.6.

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

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.
