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 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 84.1/100, a mean average of 85.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.8/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.6.

I'm not sure how much I would have appreciated her when I was younger, as I've only started getting into Nina last year. Now have Wild is the Wind, I Put a Spell on You and Little Girl Blue on vinyl. They are my most played records of the last 12 months and I'm looking forward to enjoying more of her records over the coming months and years.

A great pianist with a quite unique voice. She deserves a higher rating; I see only few members rated her (seems like not many ppl here know her).

Such an awesome talent. She had a very distinct voice and was a great pianist. Everything she did was soulful.

The High Priestess Of Soul had some very strong views and she didn't care if she offended. A woman who knew her own mind everyone should try and find and listen to "The Martin Luther King Suite" recorded live the day after he was killed - it is so moving and yet angry.An Amazing Woman.

Hang on a second, I had always thought Nina Simone was a jazz instrumentalist.
