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 artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.9.

What a strange band! This did the psychedelic music best. I will argue that with anyone. They did it for the best reasons to. Frank Zappa is a musical genius. He left us too early and he could have provided us with so many more masterpieces. He has more than 90 albums to his name and Freak Out is probably the best!

Frank Zappa's very best band ever. It's a shame it ended like this.
