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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.5/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.3.

Most of his main work sounds too 80s these days.
If you like funk and shyth pop Prince is for you.
If you don't stand both, you can listen to ATWIAD and some 'Purple rain' tracks.

All the low ratings come from Michael Jackson fans. Prince is way better, u have to admit it.

No disrespect but, if Michael Jackson was a genius, what does that make of Prince? Incredibly under-rated on this site; he should be in the top 10, easily.

All due respect to Michael Jackson and all the Pixies and Smiths out there, but this guy was the definitive artist of the 80s. He dominated the decade like no other musician. Nine records in ten years, all of them ranging from good to absolutely brilliant. That doesn't happen very often. His proficiency, creativity and originality were outstanding, his talents as a producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist were borderline inhuman, his vocal range was huge and his overall impact in the music landscape is undeniable. He was the whole package, a once-of-a-kind genius who could do it all. There is no doubt in my mind that he was one of the most brilliant minds in modern music, and as far as solo musicians go, if someone deserves to be up there in the top 10 alongside Bowie and Dylan, that's definitely Prince.

What else is there to say? Prince was one of the best pop acts of all time. Class, style and coolness rivaled by no one else, and musical innovation that most could only dream of. A talent whose influence we may never fully realise.
