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 has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 75.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 19.9.

So much more than the comedy band they appear to be on the surface. After you live with their music for a while you'll realise that their ability to turn their hands to a myriad of styles is evidence of 2 incredibly talented musicians. Lyrically they remind me of the more surreal parts of Dylan's mid 60's stream of consciousness. I don't think they're as nonsensical as they seem but more like the in jokes of 2 very clever men who are just having so much fun doing what they're doing. If you take the time to look behind the curtain of the Dr Seuss' carnival of musical parody I'm pretty certain you'll be rewarded and if you're not well at least you'll have been entertained by the carnival. And if you're not entertained by the carnival then all hope is lost.

Their first three albums are great. After that is hit or miss until The Spine, their first album that featured more flaws than good. Their newer stuff is ok but nothing close to their earlier material.

I don't understand why more people don't know about this band in 2015. Very underrated.

This band produced two of my favorite albums of all time, Lincoln (4/5) and their self titled (4/5) but nothing else by them even comes close. I also like Flood, Apollo 18 and John Henry (2.5/5)

the rest of their career doesn't really interest me, but for a band that put out two amazing albums, they still show strong qualities even with their newer albums (which rate an average 1.5/5)
