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 80.7/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 17.1.

Always had a lot of time for Paul Simon, though I always preferred his early solo material to Graceland. One of the best singer songwriters out there.

Easily, one of the top 5 songwriters of the 60's and 70's. Prolific, and very, very good.

One of my personal favorites, since I've been very young. One of the greatest songwriters to ever take up a guitar. Sad that he'll start his farewell your soon but the man has one of the longest and most respected careers in the music industry, he deserves some rest.

Influential song writer and musician ! Deserves more recognition when it comes to naming greats from the sixties tbh! :)

One of the most prolific hit machines to come out of the sixties. On par with Lennon/McCartney, Uncle Bob, The Glimmer twins, Ray Davies and Brian Wilson. Influential in so many ways. Until Capeman I didn't think he was even capable of a dud. But into his seventies his music remains vital (a trick very few can brag of). A master.

Agree with most of the previous comments. Criminally under-rated artist. Great song writer.

Criminally underrated. His solo career deserves reappraisal. Sure, he's not as "cool" as Dylan; he's something of a dork in sweatervests, but just LISTEN. Brilliant stuff. There Goes Rhymin Simon is one of the best ever albums. Period.

Should be higher on the BEA charts... Nobody crafts intelligent pop music like Paul Simon. Clever lyrics, soaring harmonies, and a taste for the multicultural. Great stuff.
