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 86.1/100, a mean average of 84.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.1.

I have a very wide appreciation for music, but I'm not sure how anyone can rate this band poorly. The careful construction of melodies and thought provoking lyrics create an amazing listening experience. They are definitely in my top 5, and could be my favorite band on any given day.

Every Tool member is at the top of their game. Innovative music, not a single bad record and some of the most memorable basslines and riffs and even skillful drumming you will ever hear and of course, Maynard's lyrics which can be as introspective as you can possibly get and sometimes he can troll the hell out of anything with his twisted sense of humor. Tool is the perfect balance between being able to play thoughtful, interesting music and still being entertaining as hell. Tool is one of the greatest bands ever.

One of the all time greatest bands ever. I love everything they've done and i'm listening to the new album now after that 13 year wait.

I just realized that the atmospheric tracks are probably dragging the scores down for their albums lol.

3rd favorite band all time. Ænima and Lateralus are both in my top 20, and their other releases are really good as well. Technical ability meets ingenius songwriting, humor, scope, and kickass metal. The infamous lack of material is the only thing I can knock them for.
