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)
This album is rated in the top 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.4/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Only hearing this album 2022 but did recognise a few of the singles. This is a brilliant debut album. Haven't heard anything else of theirs and a bit disappointed to read comments that subsequent albums don't reach the same heights - still I will give them a go - different tastes and all that... so may end up floating my boat
Brilliant debut album. Shame they could never live up to it with subsequent releases, but it was always going to be a tough ask. So much energy. A unique sound, every song on the album is unmistakably Bloc Party. My highlights are So Here We Are, This Modern Love, Banquet and Like Eating Glass. Got to shout out Luno too for an awesome pre-chorus. Weakest tracks are Price of Gas, Pioneers and She's Hearing Voices.
I have to admit that I was quite disappointed with this record and I did expect better from the reviews I have heard. The album starts out great with the first couple songs being the best on the record. Then after that it just goes downhill bare a few cuts in the middle. Most of the record does sound quite generic and like I have heard it before and that this style has been done better. The drum work is a highlight of the album though and gave me something to focus on and enjoy very much. Overall, maybe this is an album that needs multiple listens to truly understand it and in a few months I might be able to see the quality a lot of people do but right now it just isn't there for me.
Bem intenso. Tem hora que parece despretensioso, mas logo cresce em algo eṕico.
- Positive Tension
- Blue Light
- She's Hearing Voices
- This Modern Love
This Modern Love
So Here We Are
Fantastic drumming here. Some great songs, passed me by at the time. It was only downhill from this debut.
Gets better every time I listen. Sheer emotion, driving melodies and a unique, cohesive indie rock feel.
I'm listening it right now while writing this comment and I am so amazed. I've listened to it a lot of times and now I'm sure that is one of the best albums of the 2000's. No padding at all and one of the best drummer I've ever listened.
Pretty standard indie-rock album. Some tracks are quite nice, but overall it seems pretty generic to me. Good, but not excellent 70/100

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
