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 86.3/100, a mean average of 85.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.0.

These guys aren't my favorite, but you can hear their influence in most alternative rock in some way or another. Also, the song debaser is absolutely phenomenal.

You've gotta love a band who's lead singer can scream just as well now as he did in thew eighties, they're one of the best live shows I've ever seen, amazing songs, amazing musicians, amazing vocals, their new albums aren't great but when you have 5 classics under your belt it's excusable

As one YouTube comment I once saw puts it, being a Pixies fan is something else. "No one else knows what it feels like".

Doolittle has no bad songs. All killer, no filler. The rest of the band's discography is good - Surfer Rosa is great - but nothing beats Doolittle for me.

Do new albums hurt the overall rating of a band?? If they were left to their 80's & 90's they would be perfect but the new stuff....EEEEK

Pixies are one of the few bands where I sit and wonder how they came up with this brilliant noise which is equal parts soft loud melodic surf rock. I don’t understand reviewers who criticize Bossanova and Trompe Le Monde they are great albums in their own right. Their brief early career is hugely influential and I have been a bit hesitant due to the standard set but I will give their latest stuff a chance.

One of the most influential bands of all time. I just saw them in concert and got to experience just how talented of a vocalist Black Francis is.
