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 mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

Reminds me of Disintegration by the Cure. I like it. Good, dark stuff.

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:
Second Skin
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.
