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)

Ouro do Dream Pop! Grande volta da lendária banda!
I remember reading a review back then that said something like "let's see if you remember this album past this year (2017)". It is now 2021 and I still actively listen to this. One of my favorite records ever. It gets better each time.
Don't Know Why
No Longer Making Time
Sugar For The Pill
In 1993, Dave Simpson from Melody Maker wrote about Slowdive's album "Souvlaki": "„This record is a soulless void. I would rather drown choking in a bath full of porridge than ever listen to it again."
They come a long way since then. Nowadays they make pop-dream-rock which seems to be more difficult and I'm glad they changed they direction from shoegaze to such beautiful songs they are making now.
Of course "No longer making time" is a timeless great piece of music. But also the rest of the album is very dreamy-creamy and sounds fantastic.
I am new into dream pop and into Slowdive and this album makes me want to keep on discovering this band and genre.
Standout track: No longer making time.
Nice to have such an album in 2017.
back and dreamier than ever
Dreamy Pop. Some nice melodies
I do love me a bit of Dream Pop and 22 years since their last release 1995's 'Pygmalion' , Slowdives 'Slowdive' is rather excellent from top to bottom. 2017 surprise of the year for sure
The 2 standout tracks for me were "Sugar for the Pill" and closer "Falling Ashes"
Ok this is a good album but to suggest its better than 'Loveless' is ridiculous , come on guys get a grip
70 Shoe Gaze Bliss's Out Of 100
One of the most hypnotizing and engrossing shoegazing albums ever. More so than Loveless by Mbv
This rating applies to the Japanese version. Favourite tracks: Star Roving, Everyone Knows, Go Get It.
