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 3% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.5.

the Glow pt. 2 and Mount Eerie are unlike anything else. Two of the most unique albums ever. Phil is a gifted artist. I just wish he put even the slightest bit of effort into singing well.

One of the most unique and innovative artists out there. The Microphones released three masterpieces before Phil disbanded the project and began anew, with Mount Eerie (the band)

One of my favorite artists of all time. Phil is a true lyrical genius, his ability to capture that magical element his lyrics bring is something you don't see too often
