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 12% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 77.3/100, a mean average of 78.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 12.3.

Oh, just buy that Capitol Collectors Series greatest hits set and be done with it. The man had one of the most astounding baritone voices in all of music history. "Unforgettable" just has to be one of the most heart-felt, sincere recordings ever. It was played at my mom's wedding...and it was played at mine. I think it's safe to assume that it'll be played when my daughter gets married. Yeah...it's THAT timeless.
