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)

How is this the 8th greatest band in the world, I dont use the word overrated too much but this is taking it too far.
Top 10 band my ass. seeing those hipsters this high makes u question BEA site scoring system
I like Arcade Fire. I don't really grade who's what number for best. But recent comments suggest that their positioning is wrong. So does that mean this website calculation or methodology is wrong or the recent comments dont reflect a bigger majority?
Granted it's been a while since I've listened to Arcade Fire, but it strikes me as odd how highly ranked they are. I adore Funeral and the Suburbs, but their other material leaves me a bit cold, to be honest. That sort of consistency doesn't scream top 10 band to me! But then again, when they're good they're REALLY good, so maybe I'm just forgetting how powerful they are at their best.
I love AF like the other guy, but in Top 10??? lol
Very impressive discography. Funeral is my personal favourite of the band. The suburbs, Reflektor and the rest are a bit less.
An impressive discography, yes, but definitely not top ten material.
I like their songs when they come on CHOM 97.7 but that's really it. Suburbs is a decent album too. I couldnt stand Funeral though. It's just not for me. Over-rated? Yes. Shitty? No.
When you see how acclaimed this band is you go to the albums with high hopes, you expect to hear fucking Sgt Peppers 2.0. Unfortunately thats not the case. Needles to say, this band is overrated beyond believe. Specially in this site.
Where are the classic songs that make them one of the top ten best bands ever? Sure they have some good tunes, but not enough, sorry.
Im not saying theyre bad, just overrated. Too much actually.
Reflektor is their best every way

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
