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 6% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 17.1.

A criminally overlooked band. At first listen the vocals may seem off-putting, but it doesn't take long before you realise how they add to the whole galaxie 500 ambiance.
For me, they are the essential shoegaze band.
