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 mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.2.

As crucial to the Velvet Underground as Lou Reed, and with an even more impressive solo career

"Fear", the follow-up to "Paris 1919", is also a must-listen.
