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 4% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 79.0/100, a mean average of 78.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.9.

One of the greatest singers of all time. Better than Elvis in my opinion.

Don't understand the raves about this voice. Way too much falsetto and dude warbles more than he actually sings.
