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 Bayesian average rating of 83.3/100, a mean average of 83.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 10.8.

RIP Tom Verlaine, bit of a genius guitar player, wrote some great songs, unique and influential figure in the post -punk music world.

For these ears, Marquee Moon ranks easily amongst the top 30 of all-time best rock/pop albums.

Across its eight songs, the songwriting is perfect, also the interplay of the two guitars, and the voice of Tom Verlaine.

Influences? Psychedelic jamming of classic guitar bands such as the Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead and Quicksilver, but with the raw energy of punk. And timeless songs.

Their second album "Adventure" also contains some great songs, but the overall level of intensity is a bit lower.

Then Television disbanded, Tom Verlaine pursuing an interesting solo career, but with only a few songs equaling those on Marquee Moon.

Marquee Moon and Adventure are both really great. Still, I think it's funny that one album is in the top fifty, and the rest are below 5,000.

Incredible proto punk bank known mostly for "Marquee Moon", yet their 2nd effort is also a landmark release.

If MARQUEE MOON were their only album, this band would receive at least a 90 from me. However, their follow-ups just didn't have the imagination, charm, and originality that the first attempt had.
