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 3% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.7.

Did you know that one of the band's dad worked on the early development of Sat Nav. They were given a prototype to test, and this is how the band got their name.

At their peak it's the pure, uncensored sound of glorious rock and roll, and at their peak there probably isn't anyone who sounds better than them

The model of inconsistency. When they're great, they're really great, but they also produced a lot of mediocracy.

Many of my friends love this band & they do write some good songs but they never feel complete to me. If only they would develop the songs more, i would probably end up loving this band but they frustrate me so much.

Criminally underrated band, except by fanatics who overrate them.
