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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 82.7/100, a mean average of 81.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.7.

An enjoyable band, slightly overrated, but makes compelling music. Nothing outstanding here.

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
