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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 82.3/100, a mean average of 83.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.7.

Wire...Gang of Four...Pere Ubu. Drop me off on the deserted island with the discographies of these three bands and I'm good to go. Ubu was odd, creative, odd, and in the end...a rock and roll band. Two of the greatest albums ever in Dub Housing and The Modern Dance but not a dud in the bunch. The key is not to get caught up in Crocus Behemoth's (David Thomas') voice. It's an instrument, not a lyric delivery system. Taking that with the textures provided by Peter Laughner's guitar and especially Allen Ravenstine's masterful keyboards and you get probably the most unique band in the universe. And don't forget the rhythm section. Remember, this is a rock and roll band. Brilliant.
