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 6% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 78.1/100, a mean average of 78.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 12.7.

Her career was tragically cut short, but Pearl alone shows her influence in rock music, in a period when women had left the rock genre relatively untouched. As of course, that voice - iconic and unforgettable. Me and Bobby McGee is a favourite song of mine, from any artist.

The most powerful and beautiful voice in history. You can hear the pain in her voice as well as her passion. No one else like her.

I can't believe that at the peak of her career she came to Calgary (!) on tour (the Festival Express tour with The Dead and The Band - the only really succesful stop on the tour).

If you have fallen love with her once, you can't flee from her anymore. Maybe the best word is for her: PASSION.

There has never been another singer like her. The passion and the soul she put into every song are unmatched. Simply Great!

Her best stuff, I believe, was with Big Brother and the Holding Co. Janis was a powerhouse singer.
