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 Bayesian average rating of 80.3/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.3.

What I love about Beck is that everyone has a different favorite album. There isn't just one album that everyone universally mentions as his greatest. When you can have multiple albums on a best of list and have people disagree over which one of your own albums should be higher just shows the degree of greatness he has put out. Personally Sea Change is my favorite followed by Odelay.

Beck is an amazing artist who has redefined genres of music on multiple occasions. I wish his output was still as consistent as it was 10-15 years ago, but I always find something in each album of his that surprises me nonetheless. He's like a gift that keeps on giving.

The story of how he came from almost nothing is very admirable and shows how you can do anything you put your mind to. His strong passion for music drove him to work towards his fame, and he deserves all the praise that he gets!

Great musician, and person as a whole.

Beck isn't a bad artist and I enjoy a handful of his albums, but he does fall into that category of his best song is a cover. Beck has yet to move me emotionally with his own music the way he has with his cover of The Korgis' "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime".

Probably my favorite songwriter besides Dylan. Mellow Gold is one of my favorite albums of all time.

I read once that Beck was the 90s consolation prize for losing Kurt Cobain. I disagree. Beck was (and is) a far greater genius than Cobain ever was. For a long time I wasn't a fan, but his music has grown on me. Probably one of the greatest rappers of all time, if you think about Beck that way and if not, he's still one of the greatest alt rockers of all time. One of the great geniuses of all time.

I don't understand why Beck isn't ranked higher on this site. He is creative, he is solid with lyrics, melody and hooks, and he doesn't follow anyone else's template. I figured he'd fit right in to the indie-hipster vibe of this site. Who figured?
