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 3% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 82.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 9.6.

England's answer to Jefferson Airplane. Electric folk didn't get any better than this and Richard Thompson survived the electric folk era to go on to even more essential recordings. Make sure you check out the Richard and Linda Thompson albums. They're classics.
