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 73.9/100, a mean average of 73.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 10.8.

Criminally under-rated band. Their snide, snarky lyrics may deter some listeners, but the melodies this group has produced should have endeared them to throngs of fans both in Europe and in the U.S. from where I am writing. Despite a lack of recognition this band has soldiered on for 30 years, bringing hours of enjoyment to lucky fans like me!

Was never a fan but saw them support R.E.M. in 95 when they stepped in last minute after Oasis pulled out. With the number of catchy singalong singles that they had, by the 3rd song they'd won over what was a pretty hostile crowd and had the whole arena jumping. They even did a version of Some Might Say for all the people who were expecting Oasis and that got a massive cheer. Have to admit now that they are my guilty pleasure.

Their early work(1989 - 1998) was amazing and full of clever lyrics but their later - apart from their covers album - was a bit too country & western for my liking. However, they were a brilliant band should have had more than one Number 1.
