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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

When it comes to songs, there's short and then there's too short. Still, it's a gas while it lasts.

Pink flag is a collection of short punk tunes, not all of them are great but its so short it will never make you wait.

Questo disco è una deflagrazione, un'esplosione di irruenza punk per una musica che tecnicamente proprio punk non è; canzoni mediamente di due minuti suonate con perizia, i Velvet Underground capitati in piena era punk, più o meno…

A great album, wildly original, there is still nothing quite like it to compare to.

There isn't much to be said about this record other than it's an important landmark for punk
