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 Bayesian average rating of 75.0/100, a mean average of 73.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.9/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 19.3.

She's alright, but if you believed the 2005 era fuss, you'd think she was the future of music. A little overhyped.
