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)

I'm from the Beatles/Stones/Dylan generation, but the artists who sort me into a subgroup are Fairport, the Dead, and Emmylou Harris... so obviously Fairport gets a whoppin' rating from me
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.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
