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 has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.2.

maybe the band isnt as aclaimed as the beatles, but "house of the rising sun" is in top3 songs of the 60s, waaaaay ahead of its times - this song alone opened the door for many great great bands and songs in upcoming generations.

One of my favorite bands. Great at blues, very good at rock. House Of The Rising Sun is a true classic in every sense of the word.

A very good blues band with a HUGE singer. Their first two albums -maybe their first 3- are consistently good. They were playing the same league as the Yardbirds and maybe early Rolling Stones but when music changed after the Beatles 65-66 musical revolution they fell behind and their style was suddenly old overnight.

Most songs by this band seem to have "aged" more than songs by other bands (The Troggs for example also sound old, but still a lot "fresher"). This music seems out of time and ready to be forgotten (if not already by most). However, they do have 2 or 3 great songs, House of the Rising sun in the first place.

One of the seminal british bands of the mid '60's. Never up there with the Stones, Beatles or Kinks but still a very accomplished blues band.

The early Animals is great. Love the sound of the group and also Eric Burdon sings great!

Playing the same game as the Rolling Stones and Beatles, with a little bit more bluesy influences. They just don't do it quite as well. They have their moments (Rising Sun, Misunderstood, etc...) but they have way too much filler, and their post 66 work is awful. Too bad - they have some great tracks.
