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 Bayesian average rating of 78.7/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

The Jam pulled this gem out of the bag just when they were on the point of becoming one of punk's also rans. Some quite brilliant songs of anger and love as Wellers prose started to spread it's wings. "To be Someone" "Mr Clean" seemed inspirational at the time, only later did i discover how much they had leaned on the Kinks. Check out "Shangri la" a Kinks number with striking similarities to the aforementioned tracks.
A great seminal album that was at the forefront of the breakout from punk that saw some superb albums over the next 3 years by the likes of Costello, the Clash and the Buzzcocks.

Classic jam, derivative of Townsend and the Beatles in parts but some fine fine songs. Fly is self consciously tender, English rose is lovely. All mod cons in its brevity an d impact is great also. Stand out track down in the tube station has a fantastic bass line and oozes the venom of far right thugs, excellent.

For me the best Jam album, Paul Weller's song writing really blossomed on this LP. Favourite tracks are A Bomb In Wardour Street and Down In The Tube Station At Midnight.

All mod cons, in my opinion, is the best Jam album. All the potential that Paul Weller and co. had shown up to now is finally fulfilled on this great record. Weller is now truly into his stride and his songwriting is now approaching classic status. The cover of the Kinks, David Watts, is a respectful nod to Weller's influences, but nothing that Paul writes here pales in comparison to Ray Davies' classic track. Songs such as, down in the tube station at midnight, and, to be someone, are excellent. Weller shows his sensitive side on, English rose, even though he felt slightly embarrassed about it at the time. All mod cons, is a British classic. Excellent.
