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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 81.5/100, a mean average of 84.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 10.5.

Steve Albini's importance to the evolution of music is painfully understated.

SONGS ABOUT FUCKING is an absolute masterpiece and a Holy Grail for those looking to find the origins of the industrial genre. "The Power of Independent Trucking" and "Colobian Necktie" are two of the highlights of that album. It is pure aggression and clocks in at a neck-breaking 30-minutes. This is the primordial soup from which sprang Trent Reznor.
