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 19% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 21.3.

I got on the U2 train with War, but hopped off fairly quick. The sound was new and catchy, but that was mostly engineering, and the underlying music itself wasn't particularly interesting. Throw in Bono's arrogance and the group becomes borderline intolerable.

They've contributed a lot of music. I'm not a big fan besides The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby, but they're a good band. A tad overrated, but stll, a great band.
