|Rating||Date updated||Member||Artist ratings||Avg. artist rating|
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 75.6/100, a mean average of 74.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 19.4.

A band with one album has no place among the greatest of all time
Sex pistola is a very overrated punk band, the Stranglers, and the Clash are by far much better punk bands.
Can't personally get into these guys by I appreciate them
Did you know that in the mid eighties they secretly reformed in Central America as The Mex Pistols, performing mariachi versions of their hits
Music would never be the same if it wasn't for these guys. As an overall band, I prefer Public Image Ltd, but so much great bands and music stem from these guys.
Power, rage, revolution...you can get it from them!
Only one album, but what an album it was.
50/100 for attitude and influence, but let's face it, their music is awful.
We needed the Sex Pistols - musicianship was getting too complicated, disco ruled the clubs, and arena rock ruled the airwaves. We needed a group of angry kids to pick up their guitars, and make up for shoddy playing with sneering attitude. Sex Pistols steered us in the right direction.
...but there's so much better music out there. Even within Punk, the Sex Pistols are a second-rate band. Avoiding pretentiousness does not mean that you can't be able to play. Crafting melody does make one a sellout. The Clash, Dead Kennedys, and even the Ramones were much better. The Sex Pistols were influential, but overrated, and their sound hasn't aged well.
NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS: An absolutely PERFECT album!!!

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
