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)

I love them 1968-1972 🥰
A solid band and the vanguard of an entire genre. Featured Jaki Liebezeit, easily one of the 10 best drummers in all of rock.
I've been discovering Can over the last few weeks and I can safely say they've become one of my current favourite bands. I will definitely listen to some of these albums long into the future. One aspect of their music that has won me over is the incredible drumming style of Jaki Liebezeit which is just relentless at times and so so groovy at others.
Probably the greatest kraut rock band that ever walked the earth.
They are the best band for me because they fulfill so many criterion of greatness:
-Willingness to Experiment
-Notable Live Act
-Great lyrics (well, maybe not that)
Legendary jammy band. Probably the best german band of all time. Their importance is way too often underrated. They were a part of the creation of electronica, ambient and hip hop (the latter unintentionally). Very ahead of their time and probably one of the most important bands of all time.
Hell yes. Jaki Liebezeit shines - downright hypnotic drummer. production is right-on.
One of the great bands of the late 60s/early 70s. One of the best drummers of the era. Energetic live performances. Their influence can be heard on artists as diverse as Radiohead, The Mars Volta, and Focus.
Greatest German band of all time by a long, long way. Simply brilliant.
I say mothers ain't too cool.
Your feedback for Can
A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
