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 73.1/100, a mean average of 72.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 23.6.

This is the most quality fun band ever. their lyircs are filled with puns and fun. The music is uplifting and puts a smile on your face. Some material is serious and that is where you realize that they make great quality music. Not all albums are equally good, but their discography is one of the most amazing and diverse ever.

Surely the most underrated band of all time. Yes, humour can be a personal thing, especially set to music, but this is clever, fun stuff - amazing lyrics, amazing voice - which more people need to listen to!
