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 20% of artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 21.2.

Musical game changers that started out as a hardcore punk band as documented on the album Some Old Bullshit and evolved into a group who rapped over samples of rock and popular culture and their own instruments coming up with something original and highly entertaining.

Combine rap, hip-hop, jazz, funk, rock and a whole lot of wit in their rhymes to create some of my favourite albums of all time. MCA was a hell of an MC too.

Key Albums: Paul's Boutique, Ill Communication, Licensed to Ill

There's a lot for aspiring musicians to take away from the first four studio albums. Beastie Boys have a way of maintaining their consistent sound but still maintain some level of variance between each of them.

I agree with captain dude, paul's boutique is amazing and the rest of the albums are inconsistent... but still a lot of great tracks.

RIP MCA... These white boys from New York redefined the genre twice. First, when they infused hip-hop with a punk rock attitude, second, when they added funky jazz samples and loops to their tracks. One of my all-time favourites.

These guys are so much fun, they've "got more flavor than fruit striped gum". First 5 albums are amazing.
