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 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

I think this is an underrated new wave album, not a lot of versatility here, although some tracks seem to me like proto-shoegaze.
Favorite tracks: Don't Fall, Up The Down Escalator, Paper Tigers.
Oh man this album is so underrated, such a good post punk, goth album
This album really fully indulges itself in a dark and moody theme that really dominates the album. This atmosphere is created amazingly and makes the album so much fun to get wrapped up in. The band are truly one of the best and least heard of post punk artists and script of the bridge alongside Strange Times is really the peak of their artistry.
Reminds me of Disintegration by the Cure. I like it. Good, dark stuff.
Manchester had some great bands...this is one of the finest !
Cool 80s dark vibe but kinda monotonous
Very under-rated album certainly up there with the likes of Joy Division and Interpol for post-punk. No poor track on this
I listened to this album because of the comment below. I don't find many similarities between this and The Cure, but I still liked it. It's a very solid album. The first half is amazing, the real problem is the second half which is not that great, but it's still very good. Overall, a nice record.
Favorite tracks: Monkeyland, Second Skin, Up the Down Escalator
Recommended by Apple Music as I was obsessively listening to The Cure. This is one of those Love at First Listen experiences.
All the tracks are solid except for a couple tracks that sounded a little repetitive. It sounded a bit like The Cure and I'm loving the baselines and the drum.
My Favorite Tracks:
Less Than Human
Pleasure and Pain
View from a Hill
A fine piece of 80s post-punk here. Serious baritone vocals combine with gorgeous, effects-lade guitars and strong, insistent bass lines to create a wintery atmosphere that's full of beautiful, heavenly gloom.
