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)

Australian music & songwriting at its best ~ well worth a listen.
Even the songs that aren't as great fit in the mood and contribute to the overall atmosphere of the album.
Brilliant atmospheric album from one of the most underrated bands in history. "Under the Milky Way" was the right choice for the single release but the whole album has incredible and very different songs with great guitar sound. 9/10 perfect tracks made to listen during dark winter nights. The only one i don't like is "Spark".
This a criminally underrated album, and an underrated band in general. As a big fan of new wave, this is one of my favorite albums in the genre.
Best tracks: Under the Milky Way, Reptile, Destination, Spark
I don't throw statements like this out often: IMO, this is the most underrated album of all time. You would be just as hard pressed to find The Church fans here in the U.S. as you would be to find a bad song on this album. It is catchy, different, and has a spacey feel that I haven't heard in anything else. A masterpiece for sure.
This is a pretty cool album by The Church. Some great tracks like Reptile, Destination, A New Season and the classic Under the Milky Way. Would definitely recommend people to give this one a spin or two. It provides a dreamy sound to it with the tone of the instrumentation, very atmospheric.
Adore it from top to bottom.
A fantastic Australian band and this is their finest album. They did have some great songs on earlier albums
Everybody hopefully knows about the classic "Milky Way", but "destination"
Before it is a great lead in song..... & what about "reptile".... FINE
Pretty damn good album, but not ANYWHERE near as good as Heyday.
