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 has a Bayesian average rating of 75.3/100, a mean average of 75.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.5/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 9.0.

The epitome of soft folk/rock, America could be accused of being somewhat twee; lacking any musical ‘edge’ and a result much of their work is ignored by the critics. The buying public, however, particularly in the US, thought differently giving the group seven US Top ten singles and four Top ten albums. Detractors may regard them as the poor man’s CSNY but America are an excellent band in their own right and wrote some great folk rock songs.

They have some great songs, but saw them live in Brisbane 2011 & were very ordinary.
Still like them though.
