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)

Is that really his name, or did he take it from the Knack's song, Frustrated?
Surprised to see Amen above the debut, probably their best album. Ben Folds is a great songwriter, with standouts being Where's Summer B?, The Last Polka, Fair and Don't Change Your Plans.
One of the best! Picked up the piano driven rock baton from Elton John and Billy Joel and ran away with it!
Great artist with clever lyrics. Some songs really ring true for certain contexts.

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 :(
