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 has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 21.2.

joyofdivision hits it right on the money. Whether it's 69 Love Songs or one of their other just as spectacular albums, nobody matches the charm that The Magnetic Fields radiate in every one of their songs.

Agreed with below comment. I love their earlier synthpop work too.

if you edit 69 Love Songs down to about 35, it's the best album ever made ;)
