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 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.5.

Fantastic band. One of my all-time favourites. They were very important in the development of alternative rock music. They've influenced and continue to influence so many bands from across a variety of genres with their music.

Great band who may have had a few commercial hits change their sound but did not hurt their sound.

The essential alternative band. I tend to prefer listening to their 80's material, but R.E.M. was a phenomenal band throughout their 30 year run.

One of the best discographies for a band at it for 30 years. Absolutely instrumental in the independent/alternative movement. They have that bitter-sweet, pop yet anti-social aesthetic that I absolutely adore.
