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 mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.5.

No female singer evokes such emotion as Billie Holiday. The standard for emotive singing.

Billie Holiday was an incredible artist. She set the par for female vocalists in the 1950s and inspired many vocalists to come as well. Her songs were so real and so passionate especially for her time when usually the record labels ruled the airwaves instead of the artists. Billie had one of the toughest, saddest, lives I have ever read about and somehow she was able to get through all of the adversity and record timeless songs. I recommend the songs; Strange Fruit, A Fine Romance, God Bless The Child, Summertime, No Regrets, My Man, and When You're Smiling. She has so many more but those songs are a good place to start.
