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 3% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.1.

While I know The Band are a widely respected group, their overall sound is a little too "country" to appeal to my tastes. I like most roots rock, but I haven't been able to really get into The Band.

Richard Manuel, to me the most beautiful male voice in rock music, tragedy impending from the first moment on. And he was just one fifth of equal talents. Something burned in them, something very dark, reaching out for the light, don't know, if it ever got there, maybe for one moment in "Rags & bones" as a story of the past.

Amazing musicians, pretty much a fundamental part of American popular music. Did everything, turned up everywhere, stayed cool, kept credibility. Even the post-Robertson "Jericho" album is underrated.

i agree that stage fright is under rated. I also would add it to "the Band" and "Big Pink".

Stage Fright, The Band and Music from Big Pink are really great albums.

The Band did them all amazingly.

I'm surprised how little attention Stage Fright has been given, its got some excellent songs on there.

I don't think Levon Helm would be traumatized by being lumped in with Canadians...
The Band are epic - grossly overlooked in the reputation of the 60s and 70s. They trump CSN and the Byrds, easily. Top playing, top songwriting, top melody.

Well done, Robbie & co.
