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 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 84.7/100, a mean average of 92.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 9.3.

An absolutely fantastic and extremely underrated band. Mercyful Fate is one of the most important metal bands of all time. They have been a major influence on some of the biggest metal bands of all time such as Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. Melissa and Don’t Break The Oath are 2 of the best metal albums and are must listens for anyone that is a fan of the genre. King Diamond ranks as one of the greatest heavy metal singers of all time, his range and style is fantastic. I also recommend King Diamond’s solo material it’s just as good.

What a terrifying band!! If the showy stuff isn't your thing, just try to get past the King Diamond persona and just enjoy some of the best heavy metal that you've ever heard. To a lot of people, the vocals are an acquired taste. To me, they were a breath of fresh air. Unique doesn't cover what these vocals are. Enjoy!

What a follow up for Melissa! King got his voice more under the control and the quirky guitar sound gets to its best these Danes ever did. Listen to Evil and Gypsy and you're hooked. That is, of course, if the voice of King is not annoying you. In the end, his singing is of an acquired taste to many.
