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 4% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 79.1/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 20.3.

One of the greatest artist and the greatest entertainer of all time.
Michael Jackson was first a child star, the lead singer of the Jackson 5 and he became the biggest artist in the world during the 80s and 90s. At his peak he was the most appealing artist in history.
What he did from Off The Wall to Dangerous was consistant and great. He continued to create huge hits until mid-90s.
His stage peak was The Bad Tour (87-89).
He did so much for music and broke racial barriers, he took black music to a worldwide level (Thriller) not only his biggest achievement but his greatest album. He was a prolific songwriter and wrote most of his hits. He changed music videos to make it an art form. He even had huge influence on fashion.
He was the perfect package.

I try to separate the man from the music because of the terrible rumors out there and strange behavior we witnessed. His music made pop music what it is today. It’s not my type of music but can’t deny his greatness and there are several tracks I still enjoy. As for the classic debate MJ vs Prince I take Prince by a landslide.

Greatest artist off all time! All his albums, since the Off the Wall (1979) to the HIStory (1995) are great. Leaded the 80s as the top artist, with awesome pop, rock, r&b songs. In the 90s, his way of putting together different musical genders in his songs (like The Don't Care About Us [rap-rock, axé]) were astonishing, and he had the best new jack swing sound of that decade, always revolutionizing. His last album (Invincible) wasn't as great as the other ones but was quite good, having a lot of good records.
