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 25% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.8/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 9.5.

Karen could sing the owner's manual to a '73 Ford Pinto and it would be beautiful.

The Carpenters made some of the greatest pop of the 70's. Karen's voice was pure and unaffected while Richard was a master producer and arranger. The combination is classic.
