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 4% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 79.1/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 18.3.

Amazing artist with an incredible number of hits. The big ones (Vienna, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, etc.) are mandatory listening. Go ahead and give the albums a listen too, there's a surprising number of excellent deep cuts.

Billy Joel has written lots of good pop songs that are close enough to rock to be enjoyable. I'm not sure he ever made a great classic album but he made a lot of good ones.

My first four albums were Billy Joel ones and I still listen to them. Standard rock'n roll at its best.
