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 85.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 86.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Always been a bit too sad (not to be confused with goth/dark) for me. Maybe best post breakup.

I've never listened The Cure until this year, a huge mistake. This album is a masterpiece and one of the best I've listened in my life.

Como álbum en sí, no entra en un top 10 de los 80s (Al menos para los que sus gustos no sólo giran en lo anglosajón) pero de forma personal es un eterno favorito, un autentico abrazo al alma.

Going back to this page however, I am surprised (not really) that my previous positive review got 4 dislikes. It was a positive review I repeat, and I didn't make any egregious claims unless you think this isn't jangle pop or new wave. Only negative thing I said was that it was not my cup of tea then. And the average tunnel vision victim just cannot let that slide. "How can you listen to this, and not like it?" Funny how when someone gives fair criticism of art you hear voices shouting "art is subjective" from all directions, but when someone actually says they personally don't like it, they are objectively wrong. Quick lesson: you can discuss the subjective parts of art that could apply to anyone (like linking the color red with anger), but not the subjective parts that only count for you (like being nostalgic to a certain type of music because your dad or brother used to listen to it).

Going back to this album I absolutely love the atmosphere it creates; it's professional joy dividing. The feeling it gives me reminds me of listening to Mellon Collie for the first time, while being stylistically fairly different.

This was the last of the listenable Cure albums and is a step down from Kiss Me Kiss Me. Some nice tracks but overall a bit weak.

I don’t think it is as depressing as some people say it is, it’s just intense and drawn out. I can understand how this was a mind blower back in the day, and songs like fascination street are awesome bangers, and the album holds up for the most part, but the songs just drag too much. It’s better for background noise honestly.....it shouldn’t take 3 minutes for every song to actually get good.

Nice album but somehow it is very longue and sometimes monotone so I did not like it as much as I would have liked to.
