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 3% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.9.

One of the best hard rock/metal groups ever. Blackmore is one of the very best guitarists ever. My only complaint is that their discography is inconsistent.

The first incarnation will always be my favorite, though Mk II released some good albums as well.

I love Deep Purple. They helped create hard rock, that alone makes them one of the greatest of all time.

One of the pioneers of heavy metal. Their 1970's output is essential heavy metal and hard rock listening. Amazing musicianship too.

The first incarnation of Deep Purple formed in 1968 and featured Rod Evans on vocals and Nick Simper on bass and rapidly achieved success particularly in the US. In 1969 Evans and Simper left to be replaced by Gillan and Glover respectively. This Mark II line up is regarded as the ‘Classic’ Deep Purple.

Deep Purple became one of the leading bands of the heavy rock era along with Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath. They were not as blues influenced as the former and were not as heavy as the latter. Instead Deep Purple played ‘speed’ rock, often with superb interplay between Blackmore’s guitar and Lord’s keyboard’s. Soaring above the music was Gillian’s clear and powerful voice which is one of rock’s greatest, and has become the prototype for all heavy metal vocalists.

After four years, four studio albums and a classic live album Glover and Gillan decide to leave in 1973.The arrival of David Coverdale and Glen Hughes would create the Mark III version of Deep Purple but this would be the last period of stability before of an endless stream of personnel changes. It was however in the early seventies that they were at their peak producing some of the greatest rock music ever recorded.

Legendary Group... One of the best group ever from 1968 to 1976! They did loose their power after, but the first albums contain probably the most sought musics I've ever heard. Wring That Neck, Bird has Flown, I'm So Glad, then Black Night, Child in Time, Bloodsucker, Living Wreck, Never Before, Lazy, Burn and so many more! The classical influences of John Lord (RIP) and the crazyness of Ritchie Blackmoore and Ian Paice made probably one of the best group ever!

I don't dig Deep Purple, good songs/riff but I don't like Gillian voice at all ... and Blackmore guitar style is ... well it's not my style. The organ solos are boring.
I respect this band 'cause of the "legacy" and everything but I can't listen a whole DP album.
