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 82.2/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 14.3.

Undervalued on this site, especially by our American cousins. Read somewhere that Weller & The Jam combined have only sold something like 300,000 records in the States.

The Jam is the best Brit band from the post-punk era. Paul Weller is a musical genious and a great lyricist!!!

They will always define youth...and Weller meant it when he declared "and those golden faces are under 25" in 1977...then he brilliantly split the band before his 25th birthday...thus no need for a talisman...he preserved the band...were as important as the clash and NEVER compromised...aah, the glory days and sweet birds...

Let the snot run down your nose, play your instrument with fierce conviction and kick in your amplifier...just make sure you wear a jacket and tie when you do it.
