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 94.4/100, a mean average of 92.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 94.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.1.

I agree with the notion that the Beatles are the greatest band, whilst not being my all time favourite band. Still, when they get it right they really do light me up. And they got it right many, many times.

The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Кино (Kino)(Russian band) are best bands in history 🥰🎸
After them: Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Joy Division, the Cure, Queen, Radiohead, Omega, Golden Earring, Amon Duul II, Nirvana, Moby and others

Sooo many good songs, with such variety and experimentation. Are they the greatest band ever? Well, they are not my favorite, but if there is such a thing as the greatest band, it´s probably them.

Decent singers. People in the band are cool. Massive respect for their songwriting and studio capability. Not my favorite though. Still good.

Not my favourite band, but the greatest in my book. They did more to push popular music forward than any other band in history and the breadth of their career is astounding. They pioneered new recording techniques and introduced exotic new influences into the popular consciousness, such as Indian music and the cutting-edge tape experiments of contemporary composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen. Even when they weren't the first to do something, their popularity ensured that they were uniquely placed to bring audiences along with them and introduce them to these new techniques and styles. Add to that their incredibly sophisticated songwriting and tight musicianship, and you have an absolutely legendary act. They were one of my very first musical loves, and while I drifted away from them as a contrarian teenager, I have since embraced them again and my life is better for it. The Beatles never fail to make me smile, and that is a beautiful thing!
