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 4% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 79.2/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 6.5.

Tracy Chapman before there was Tracy Chapman. An incredibly gifted singer/songwriter/musician who writes moving guitar ballads and folk songs. You can't go wrong with any of her albums.

A great singer songwriter who has created wonderful music for over 40 years. Her self titled 1976 album is her best quickly followed by To The Limit(78) and Show Some Emotion(77) Back to the Night & Me Myself I are also great albums. Another good album of hers is The Shouting Stage (1988) and her latest trio of albums released between 2007 - 13 are explorations of jazz blues and rock. She still tours and is a versatile and amazing performer.
