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 3% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.0.

It’s been said in many comments already but bears repeating that Elton is underrated on this site. He was one of the great artists of the 1970s his run that decade rivals David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, Pink Floyd and maybe a few others. His best songs rival even The Beatles. The rest of his career is nothing to sneeze at either still plenty of classic singles.

Painfully under-rated on this site, 130 in the artist rankings? How many other artists can release a double CD of greatest hits and there's not room for all of his hits? He could release a triple greatest hits album and there still would be no filler. There are 129 artists better than Elton John, the Egyptians built the great pyramid and the easter bunny is real.

I don't understand why Elton John is not rated in the top 20 on the BEA list. His volume of excellent and outstanding work should qualify him for something higher. He excels as singer, songwriter and musician. A true all-around talent.

Elton John is has released so much material in his lifetime that he has managed to become a favourite artist of mine even though I only really like/listen to 20% of his music (his 70s albums plus a few other songs). It always intrigued me why he relied on Bernie Taupin, Tim Rice and others for his lyrics, as often it's the music I'm in love with while the lyrics seem neither here nor there (e.g. Levon, Tiny Dancer). I'm sure he could have done just as good a job himself.
Elton John is a prolific talent whose music will always be memorable and hold special value.

Elton is a special artist for me. A musical genius, along with Stevie Wonder, who I grew up with just as my parents did when Elton debuted. Also like Stevie Wonder, he is very underrated on this site. Yes, after the late 70's, Elton has been merely a shadow of his former self, but his accomplishments speak for themselves.

Similar to Queen, he only has a few truly great albums, but his catalog of hits speak for itself as well. Yellow Brick Road is one of the most wonderful works of art in the history of popular music. Elton John is a legend.

Briliant singles artist - not quite at the same level when looking for whole albums.

If there's an underrated artist in this site is Elton John, in the 70's he pulled out a Bowie releasing one great album after another. He hasn't done many interesting things since but with 8 albums (or so) been pretty consistent he is already a legend.

Take a look at the artist rankings and note some of the bands ranked above Elton. It's really rather insulting, he is certainly an underrated artist on this site.
