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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.4/100, a mean average of 72.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

Forever young the song is a true masterpiece, as good as any song from the 1980's. Rest of the album is not as strong as this track but is worth acquiring.

Alphaville nailed the use of Linn Drum, coupled with really punchy synth bass lines overlaid with catchy synth lead lines. Add to the mix Marian Gold's strong vocal abilities this makes for a very good formula. Particular favourites are Big in Japan, Forever Young and Victory of Love.

Is it wrong to give an album a 70 if you have only listened to 2 of the songs and one is of your all time favorite songs "forever young"? If the album had Forever Young as the only tracked played in 10 different versions I would give it a 70.

Two relatively memorable songs do not a great album make.
