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 80.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 11.6.

This group pretty much invented complex lyricism and shaped the way most of the 90's rappers wrote their rhymes. 4 classic albums. 1. Paid in full 2. follow the leader 3. Don't sweat the technique 4. Let the rhythm hit 'em

Their first two albums are classic but their other two albums are pretty good as well. Four albums of this quality is really hard to come by.

Paid in Full should be ranked higher than 692. And how is Follow the Leader in the 2000s? These guys are some of the most important forefathers of hip-hop, and their work stands up well to age.
