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)

No other band could capture such raw emotion as Van Der Graaf Generator. Extremely unique and intense, sometimes beautiful and sometimes terrifying.
One of the most unique and amazing bands ever. Extremely intense, challenging, and ultimately cathartic. I don't think anybody band could capture an emotion the way VDGG did.
Not everyone's cup of tea, but another absolutely groundbreaking band. Peter Hammill has a voice like no-one else and the weird blend of hammond organ, saxophone and flute is glorious. Still Life and Pawn Hearts are both masterpieces.

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 :(
