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 85.9/100, a mean average of 85.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.5/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.1.

Really love the 1st two albums. Played them to death when I first heard them about 15 years ago. Never really got into Pink Moon, so was surprised to see it is his highest rated here.

He's a talented songwriter with a delicate voice. Reminds me of Beck's Sea change.

One of several artists whose tragically underrated status at the time they released their music has led to an overrated status among music buffs today, in order to compensate now that more people have retrospectively discovered him. Having said that, I'm happy for him to be overrated, because his understated but powerful songwriting carries a poignancy few artists have ever been able to replicate. Pink Moon is his best album, but he has many other good songs. His ability to capture understated emotion ranging from melancholy to magical is second only to Cat Stevens, whose album Mona Bone Jakon is the perfect example of such ability.

One of my favourite artists. Such a shame that he lived such a tragic life and died so young
