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 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 11.1.

Excellent artists, I love pretty much all but their new work. Violent Femmes is by far their best work and as such it is in my top 10 albums of all time. ALso worth checking out are 3 and Hollowed Ground.

...not one album wonders but at least 3 album wonders:
Violent Femmes, Hollowed Ground, Viva Wisconsin (OK mostly songs of the two former albums...).

Is it harsh to label these guys one album wonders? Violent Femmes is a fantastic album, full of perceptions on growing up and cutting humour that's smarter than people realize. Further, these guys are pretty strong instrumentally - who else can rock out on a xylophone? Too bad they couldn't be consistently strong from album to album.
