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 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 23.2.

Repetitive and annoying. This artist came onto my classical radio station when I was driving and I felt like I was going to get in a car crash. Artist merits maximum low score (lower than my review for 21 and Atom Heart Mother currently) for almost killing me.
