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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.8.

Took a while to get into him...but i now think he is outstanding. Excellent in the 60's,70's and 80's...but still producing quality to this day.

This list makes me realize I do not know Veedon Fleece well enough. My top four would be: Astral Weeks, Moondance, Tupelo Honey and Into the Music. Carry on voting for your own fave, though, the man has made some amazing albums.... 80's stuff like Poetic Champions and Enlightenment was just fine, too.

Not as topical as Bob Dylan, probably lacking the same storytelling and biting lyrics, but on par with his poetry. And he oozes soul. And he can sing. Van Morrison was huge. Too bad he couldn't keep producing quality music after 1975.

No one has more soul than Van. "Moondance", "Astral Weeks" and "Veedon Fleece" are beyond this world.
