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 albums can have several thousand ratings)

I thibk this is one of the best albums from 1981 and from the 80s. This was the culminate point of them carreer. There's no album sounding like this. They had a sound witch combine New Romantic and Synth-Pop with oriental music. David Sylvian's voice and compositions are amazing, Mike Karn was the best bassist of its time and Richard Barbieri made them sound futurist.
The album also produced the hits "Visions Of China", "Ghosts", "The Art Of Parties" and "Catonese Boy"; and on its time was considered one of the best bands. Duran Duran was highly influencieted in them first record by Japan (even they took Japan's looks).
Definetly a masterpiece witch everyone should listen to.
many of the early 80s trendy synth-wave bands sound arty and vain to me. and so it is with japan. the songs are interesting and strange - but also cool and repellent.
Sadly the last of Japan's studio albums. At least they went out with a bang because this is great.
