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 4% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.7.

Superb live. Solid back catalogue. One of my favourite bands period, and definitely my favourite Manchester band.

One of my favourite bands of all time. A fairly unique band who amongst them play several different instruments. They are an absolute pleasure to see live and some great songs and albums.

In the United States they've sadly been written off as a one-hit wonder. Once you beginning exploring their discography, you discover there is far more depth to this band than a brilliant single. One of the best active live bands around, has one of the deepest discographies of any band from their era.
