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 albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 24% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.6/100, a mean average of 73.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

One of my favorite new wave albums of the early 80s and all time. Blinded me with Science was issued on subsequent releases to this album so I do consider it part of Golden Age of Wireless

Another of my early 80's favourites that I still listen to (and enjoy). His best album too, The Flat Earth has too few songs (one of which is Mulu and I just can't bear that song)!

This is more than just "She Blinded Me With Science".
