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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

This is the album to play to anyone who needs to understand the "Manchester sound." Definitive and just great fun!

Peak Madchester. Step On and especially Kinky Afro are magnificent. God's Cop, Donovan and Bob's Yer Uncle are cool too.

Only got round to getting this 90's classic in 2016 - I liked their singles at the time. Kinky Afro, Loose Fit and Holiday are all great tracks, but the highlight is the China Girl inspired "Step On" - yes that is right, listen to the bass in the verse and it matches up tightly to Pop/Bowie China Girl
