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)

Tom Waits is a truly fantastic artist. Regardless of the decade or the genre, Waits produces music of a consistently great quality, while making each and every song unique but instantly recognisable as one of his. Swordfishtrombones and Rain Dogs are two of the best albums of the 80s, and I'm yet to hear a Tom Waits album that I dislike.
I don't know if there's a single other artist with the same emotional range as Tom Waits. He can send me from laughter to tears to feeling like the coolest person in the world to feeling like I need to take a shower within the span of a couple songs.

Ok here goes , I'm fully prepared for a zillion down votes
I'm a life long music nut ,listening to music is my passion .
I just don't get Tom Waits , I just don't and believe me I want to .
I understand his popularity , I understand he's "The Peoples Voice " apparently , I understand 'Rain Dogs' is the best album of 1985 . But whenever I listen I just don't enjoy his work
It took me a long time to come around to Radiohead , but I'm there now . Tom Waits ? The magic just is not happening.
I don't get Tom Waits
One of the greatest voices ever.
Paladasiac, if that's a ruined voice, I don't want to hear an intact one.
Superb, a one off . . . Nothing else needs to be said
What's the point of singing, if your voice doesn't have character?
What I like about Tom Waits is that he is unique. The sound, the style, the music, the show... Kudos to this artist. One of the best
