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 has a Bayesian average rating of 76.0/100, a mean average of 74.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.0/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 21.5.

U2 are a tough band to rate, at least for me. I love some of their songs and have All That You Can't Leave Behind in my top 100 of all time. I do think some of their other albums are over-rated - maybe 2-3 good songs with lots of filler. Still, overall, they have created music, lyrics and a feel that (sometimes) takes me somewhere special - and for that I am grateful.

U2 have produced some great records over the years and were one of the greatest band ever in their heyday, though the more recent output is only average. I do wish people would rate a band by it's music not it's politics or it's ability to annoy everyone in sight. There are many bands capable of this extraordinary incompetence, Nickleback, Kanye West and Creed spring to mind. U2 were great, they deserve a high rating, recent releases are not up to their previous standards, not surprising and not a reason to give them a silly rating now.
