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 78.8/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

Great album, this band sounds like mix of The Clash, Talking Heads and Ramones. Something between punk rock and new wave.
Album of the year. 1978.
Credit for it's vibrance. I recall this album at the time and was mildly interested - wasn't quite the spit of punk rock.
not really my thing but decent enough soft punk
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.
First in a string of 3 exceptional albums by the Jam
Favorite Tracks:To Be Someone, Billy Hunt, It's Too Bad, A Bomb In Wardour Street, Down In The Tube Station At Midnight
Started amazing but end like meh, good album overall
I liked this for the most part. Plenty of Kinks influence.
