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 17% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 76.7/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.0.

An excellent example of symphonic metal, although there can be a bit of sameness over the course of an album. They've had multiple lead singers, but they're all possessed of outstanding voices.

Definitely an acquired taste and some of the music can drag but some of their better songs are downright compelling.

Some of their melodies are fantastic. Although I don't usually listen to rock/metal music, this group is fantastic.

Anette and Nightwish have unfortunately parted ways. Floor Jansen is to be their third singer. This could be quite intriguing. However, Anette will be greatly missed; Imaginaerum showcased a vocalist coming into her own. She's been improving considerably, and the band had great live chemistry, but this was quite the curveball.

I just saw these guys live and they are one of the best live bands out there right now. I was extremely impressed, and the billing (Kamelot/Nightwish) as a whole might've been in the top 3 or top 2 concerts I've ever been to. Highly recommended.

I like them...the old singer Tarja is gone, but the new chick is just as good. Orchestral Metal is what it is.
