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 14% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 76.8/100, a mean average of 75.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.2.

One of the best metal bands ever. Peace sells and rust in peace are must listens for anybody. But beyond those two albums, their discography is inconsistent.

Everything up to and including Youthanasia was great. Peace Sells & Rust In Peace two of my favorite of all time. After that it's been hit or miss. They can still deliver high quality material though & Dave Mustaine is one hell of a genius.

Thank you Metallica for kicking out Dave Mustaine, because he went on to create one of the most important metal bands. They didn't write as many hits as Metallica but have remained far more consistent and would rather buy a more recent Megadeth album than a more recent Metallica one. So much talent has come and gone with this band. Gar Samuelson, Marty Friedman, Chris Poland, David Ellefson, Chris Broderick, the list goes on and on.

They're good for where they are at. Any higher and I'd give them a lower rating.

My least favorite band of the big 4 thrash bands (Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth) but I still appreciate Megadeth. They were a very talented band in their day. Best Megadeth album: "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?".
