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 79.8/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.5.

This was my first time on this site and I was impressed with how complete your list of Ry Cooder's discography was until I got to the end. I don't to be rude but is this a joke? You've missed his whole later career, which most consider his best, and his two best and most influential albums. In 1994 Cooder released "Talking Timbuktu" with the brilliant Mali guitarist Ali Farka Touré. If you've never heard it you're in for a treat. Touré plays an exotic, bluesy slide guitar in the Mali style that blends beautifully with Cooder's own Southern blue slide guitar. The album is MAGIC, and I don't usually speak in caps! Arguably his best album. Just listen to the song Bondé. The best. Then Ry Cooder released Buena Vista Social Club in 1996, recorded in Cuba with an amazing collection of Cuban musicians, the album captured that classic Cuban sound and started a worldwide craze for that authentic sound that is still going strong today. If you don't know the albums, you owe it to yourself to check them out.
