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 50.9/100, a mean average of 48.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 48.4/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 31.3.

She's one of the best songwriters of all time. So overhated on this site.
The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, ... Shake it off. A hyper talented, multi-faceted artist I've tried to ignore and miserably failed. And I have a feeling it's only the beginning of her extraordinary trajectory.
Disliking something popular doesn't make you special.
Taylor Swift makes incredible pop music. She's not trying to churn out the new "OK Computer," she's trying to make catchy, fun, lyrical pop music. While what's on the radio from her can be intolerable, she focuses on whole albums (a rarity for pop stars nowadays)
Popularity does not imply quality.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Taylor Swift is by far the most offensive musical artist I've ever encountered. She represents all that is wrong with the relationship between music and society. I find the icon that is Taylor Swift far more distasteful than the most raunchy Eminem lyric.
Why? It's simple, everything about her is perfectly curated to sell records. So much meticulous crafting has gone in to every faucet of her image that in casual conversation one is not allowed to dislike her. It is a bigger crime to be critical of Taylor Swift than it was to question Issac Newton in the scientific community before Einstein discovered relativistic mechanics.
And just like Newton's theories that were applicable to "most scenarios" - Taylor's music is liked by most people: how can you not enjoy those catchy melodies and cleanly produced radio hits? However, just as those who understand physics know that Newton being "a little bit off" was a BIG deal people who understand music understand that Taylor Swift being "a little bit off" is a BIG deal.
She is completely unoriginal, bland, tasteless, never takes risks, does nothing ever that is polarizing or controversial. Nothing to detract from the record sales! But it's perfect because it's not bad enough for anyone to lose credibility claiming she is a "guilty pleasure". Ultimately though it should be an insult to the entire music community that one of the best selling artists of the millennium is a complete fraud equating to musical progress of an absolute zero.
Lyrics are TERRIBLE. Songs absolutely not interesting, same structures and instrumentation every single time. Just look at the covers of albums and everything will be explained all by itself. Trying to play on the looks instead of her singing and songwriting talents, and listening to her it's easy to see why.
Not a great popartist, but not the worst either
Yes, three of Taylor Swift's albums do appear in the yearly top 40 for this website. And I have nothing to really say about it except that it does disappoint me.
I see based on your rating that you are a fan and I'm perfectly fine with that, and albums on this site are put into the list base on the number of charts they're out into here. But that does not mean all the albums put in a computerized list for every year based just about only on fan ratings will be genuinely good.
There are probably albums put generally high in a yearly list for this site that you hate, and ones you may love. But this is all judged mostly by fans, making it so handfuls of stuff get through.
So, basically what I'm saying here is that I don't believe any of Swift's albums deserve any mention in a best of list, but at the end of the day it's all about personal opinion and personal taste, which is of course different for everyone.
No I meant the top 40 of the yearly charts on this website. Speak now, red and 1989 are all in the top 40 of the chart of their respective year.
