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 5% of artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.8.

One of the best performers and voices in music probably ever. Sad that he would go so early.

I get it, this is a "best albums" website, not a "best artists" one, but I simply can't trust a "top artists" list if Sam Cooke is not at least in the top 30.

It's a shame this is a 'best albums' website. It means that artists from the singles era (before the mid sixties) are often overlooked. Sam Cooke is a perfect example of this. Despite his early demise, he has a phenomenal library of music. Nobody could swing with soul like Sam Cooke.
