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 6% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.4/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.7.

Love the Stranglers, best punk band by far.
R.I.P. Dave Greenfield, writer and arranger of the immortal "Golden Brown", a keyboardist extraordinaire who brought something different to the post-punk movement. Died as a result of the coronavirus "COVID-19" on 5th May 2020.
Although not strictly punk, one of the best bands to come out of that era along with The Clash.
Did you know that Hugh and JJ met whilst they both worked at an abattoir, after a couple of months choking their chickens they left, and this is how the band got their name
Stanglers put out some great stuff, even some of the later albums without Hugh Cornwall are ok.
Love The Stranglers. Their main best of album is class. Must get to know their albums better.
Your feedback for The Stranglers
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 :(
We work very hard to ensure our site is as fast (and FREE!) as possible, and we respect your privacy.
