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)

An enjoyable band, slightly overrated, but makes compelling music. Nothing outstanding here.
2. High Violet
3. Sleep Well Beast
4. Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers
6. Trouble Will Find Me
Not for the music, not for the lyrics, I'm just here for Matt's voice
1) High Violet
3) Trouble Will Find Me
4) Sleep Well Beast
Mat is best vocal ever...his voice is something realy special!
1. Boxer (brainy, fake empire, start a war)
2. Alligator (Geese of beverly road, Daughters of the soho riots)
3. High Violet (afraid of everyone, bloodbuzz ohio)
4. Trouble Will Find Me (humiliation, dont swallow the cap)
For years and years I'd never been able to single out an artist or band as being my favourite. That was until I stumbled upon the National in 2010. Boxer, Aligator, High Violet and Trouble Will find me are to me 5 star albums. Cherry Tree EP is also excellent.
The only problem that I have with this band is that every album sounds the same. But the good thing is that every album is great
His voice is orgasmic...Enough Said
