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 88.4/100, a mean average of 87.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.5.

He invented fusion jazz because he worried jazz was losing its popularity in the late sixties to rock. What a great man Miles Davis is and look at what all his fusion players made afterwards. Return To Forever are greatness, Weather Report are greatness, Mahavishnu and Herbie solo are greatness, and Tony Williams Lifetime. The list goes on.

Probably because I'm a jazz neophyte, but I prefer his 50s and early 60s work over what came later. Whatever you prefer, there's no questioning his genius.
