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 4% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 79.2/100, a mean average of 77.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.9.

probably the closest metal has gotten to being decent in and of itself but I'm not really a fan

I have tons of respect because they are extremely talented players, but they can't write a half-decent song to save their lives.

Amazing musicians with some underrated somgwriting talent, but they should've hung it up after Octavarium.

Musically they’re currently the best band out there. It’s not all in technical stuff, but it tends to be forgotten among non-musicians how hard it is to perfect playing instrument(s).

Don't know if I call myself a fan, but lots respect for these guys, they are great musicians with fantastic variety. Most importantly, they make very engaging music.

It sounds like there is tons of inspiration that they put into their music, which is something honorable.

Dream Theater has been a favorite of mine since I first seriously started listening to music.

We always mention their musicianship, and of course it's on a level that only few other bands have reached, but sometimes that's all people focus on and there is so much more to the band than that. Dream Theater can write truly amazing songs, not just long epic songs. They have an amazing sense of melody and they are one of the best live bands on Earth.

I don't think anything has topped, or ever will top Scenes From A Memory in their catalog, but Six Degrees and Octavarium came close. This band helped revolutionize and widen the audience of progressive music and for that they should be applauded.
