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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 82.6/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.0.

I love Pink Flag, have listened to 154 and Chairs missing and I don't think they're quite as good - but still a great band.

They are magnificent. But I must say, I saw them in the 90ies (or was it 2000s?) and that was one of the biggest disappointments I ever experienced. When you do a reunion concert, you should at least behave professionally, (like e.g. Velvet Underground did). Wire were very obviously bored and embarrassed to be forced to get together again.

I know there are more Wire fans out there. It's okay to comment! This band deserves real recognition. I saw them play last night in NYC and they were terrific. They play so fast and precise it was awe inspiring. I am very glad I discovered this group.

An important band. Though Pink Flag is not overrated as it's considered a classic of minimilism, the band's overall output is quite excellent. 154 and Chairs Missing are equally great albums. A great band.
