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 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 87.7/100, a mean average of 87.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.7.

His three studio releases are all masterpieces, they redefined what an electric guitar could do, as well as a funky live record. Then, he passed away. The reason his death was so tragic was because he had so much more music left in him. Just listening to the tracks he was recording before he died, I think about what could have been.

He was the first guitar man who invented the excessive use of distortion

Plain and simple, the best rock guitarist of all time. He could play any style well. Innovative, and with a passion unparalleled. Three superb albums in Are You Experienced, Electric Ladyland and Axis: Bold As love.

My top 5 guitarists:

1. Jimi Hendrix
2. Eric Clapton
3. Carlos Santana
4. Jimmy Page
5. Jeff Beck

Says it all, eh?

Why isn't "purple haze" or "hey joe" on the best track list? Can someone add those to this site?

Deus Ex Mack said it very well, so I wish to only add that Jimi Hendrix was a really decent human being, too. Watch the Netflix doc that shows how much the dude loved life. In fact, I do believe he may have been murdered, .

While sometimes inconsistent, there's no denying his ability, passion, and legacy. Rock music is definitely richer having had Jimi along the way.

wikipedia about sums it up actually: Band of Gypsies 2 is a "posthumous live album" released 15 years after his death. wow. this guy's been dead for almost half a century and they're still milking him. that's just insane. they just keep releasing what they think his next album might have sounded like using s*&^ he recorded after electric ladyland but b4 his death.

if all members of radiohead had died in a plane crash half a year b4 AMSP dropped, do you think so many different attempts at creating their next album would be released over the next 50 years? it's mind boggling.

this site is missing about half of "hendrix's" albums btw.... wtf. leave him alone for f&^%'s sake.
