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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.6/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

For whatever reason this one never really grabbed me. Cities in Dust is a classic although the production dates it. Candyman sounds like it was a leftover from Juju but it’s good. The rest is okay.

Tinderbox is a journey into a strange yet tempting wasteland. Fueled by a sense of mystery,track after track pulls you in.

This is a lot poppier than their early work, however most Siouxsie fans will probably like this album.

In my opinion, Tinderbox is The Banshees at their best. And it's not just for Cities in Dust. Other great tracks include Land's End, Partys Fall, Sweetest Chill
