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 1% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 86.7/100, a mean average of 85.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.1/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 13.3.

A good band, but they don't deserve the acclaim they get. While Ray Manzarek is very talented, his organ gets old VERY fast. Jim Morrison isn't even a good vocalist. Definitely not in the conversation for the greatest bands ever.

Never understood their acclaim when compared to the output of contemporaries like The Kinks, The Byrds, Love, The Animals, The Zombies, Jefferson Airplane, CCR just to name a few

Love their distinctive sound. Had LA Woman and The Doors for decades, but looking forward to expanding my collection in the coming weeks.

What a unique band ! One of my favourites. Their string of 6 albums 1967-1971 is amazing.

One of the most under rated bands, who in my opinion, have been forgotten about. The first doors album is one of the best albums ever made. Ray Manzerek is one of the most under rated keyboard players ever, he came up with some other worldly keyboard parts. The Doors, Strange Days, and LA Woman are definitely their best. Jim was a real rockstar. They don’t make them like that anymore

Often amazing, sometimes just strange, the doors were unique in the annals of classic rock.

Morrison's godlike figure often undeservedly overshadows the rest of the band - who are extremely talented musicians. The Doors made incredible music with Morrison. Anything without him wasn't as good, but the stuff with him was brilliant.
