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 73.2/100, a mean average of 72.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 19.6.

I'm from Birmingham & love a lot of the music that my home town has produced but I have to draw the line @ UB40. Repetative & uninspired I'm afraid.

UB40 does one thing and they do it well. They turn rock and pop songs in reggae masterpieces. They haven't changed the formula in years...why should they? They're as consistant with their sound and approach as AC/DC or ZZ Top. You always know what to expect...and it'll be pleasant to your ears.
