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 17% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 76.7/100, a mean average of 74.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 20.4.

Really overrated band... The Stooges came before and were way more innovative, but this... This is just 50's rock'n roll played louder and faster, nothing more nothing less.

Highly influential proto punk/glam/hard rock group. They deserve a little more love on this site.

I'll never understand why Robert Christgau loves this band so much. Fun sound, and a clear missing link between Stooges proto-punk and late 70's Ramones/Clash/Sex Pistols punk, but it kind of feels like it's missing something emotionally.
