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 79.5/100, a mean average of 82.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 8.3.

Deserve his place under the top 1000. He is one of the greatest bluesman ever.

His early work is dynamite... but was before the peak of the album format. His later work gave him some much-deserved attention, but it pales in comparison to what he did in the 50s and 60s.
