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 mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.4/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 12.7.

Master lyricist, songwriter and one of the most pleasing vocals in all of indie/rock or whatever you’d classify Smith as. He’s easily my favourite solo artist of all time, and every album he has could be considered one of the best of all time. Rest in peace, Elliott. XO

Nobody could craft songs like Elliott Smith. He was able to harness the intense power of subtlety in such a creative way.

The greatest songwriter in all of pop music. I will have to agree with the previous comments that he never made a bad song.

Rediscovered thanks to BEA. A sublime talent that pulls at the emotions.

Does anyone else think he listened to a bunch of Big Star as a kid?

An amazing discography. I was really, really into him in high school, into every single album he put out as well as New Moon. The top three are definitely Either/Or, XO, and his self-titled. Hard for me to choose an order.
