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)

they have a very solid very consistent back catalogue over their career. The six albums till The King Is Dead are all great (with Crane Wife and Picaresque being truly amazing and underrated to be honest) They never really achieve the heights of some other big indie bands, but for the most part they have always been at least good.
Good Band, live show is decent.
Good band, have some great songs. Underwhelming at times
Great band live or recorded
I rate it an 8, but i'm just gonna say it ain't bad..it's folk so i automatically highly enjoy it so ay
Nice band. The Crane Wife is their masterwork. But their other albums are worth checking out too.
One of the great live acts I've ever seen. Smart, catchy songs.
Absolutely superb band. Each album has a distinct character. In general they are a highly theatrical story-telling band; terrific musicians and wonderful arrangements.
Very very cool band!
Great live band - one of the few that really engage with their audience, these days - and they are building up a great catalogue of albums. Hazards of Love is awesome, with Picaresque and Crane Wife not far behind.
