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 80.6/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.4/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 19.5.

A genius. I became curious, interested and a collector of film music thanks to his music. Even his not-so-good works are better than some other film scores by other composers.

One of the greatest, and easily the most successful, film composers of all time. He has also produced some fine music for the concert hall as well.
