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)

Though their output has decreased in quality as their noterity has done the opposite, many of us remember a time when only people that actively searched for their music had even heard of The Shins. Their first three albums stand as a testament to the artistic power that enthused early 2000's indie rock. You will be hard pressed to find a more complete album than Chutes Too Narrow.
Possibly the best band around at the moment.
Very consistent band with great music.
This band still holds a special place in my heart, but my last comment was ridiculously hyperbolic. A great band, but definitely not the best ever, not by a long shot. I guess it goes to show how I've become more discerning of what's good and bad in the last couple of years. But my rating still stands due to my own personal connection to this band.
James Mercer can do no wrong
While I'm not obsessed or mesmerised by the Shins they have some really beautiful albums that I will be further exploring over time.
At their worst they are catchy and tuneful, at their best they are brilliantly, artfully tuneful, only occasionally do they veer toward obscurity or lack of relevance.
