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 3% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 17.1.

On par with Funkadelic, and equally underappreciated.

George Clinton was a musical genius...no doubt. Damn funky stuff. Too bad all of the rappers ripped him off by constantly sampling his music. Stop talking over the George Clinton masterpieces!!
