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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.3/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

I'm not really a fan of punk music, but I must admit that this album is impressive.

Good punk, love the other styles it mixes its sound with. Not groundbreaking, but it rocks and it's fun, which is much better than trying dumb experimental shit that sounds like shit.

A guitar heavy post-punk album that builds some jagged grooves and cynical lyrics.

Sometimes I forget how great this album haves. It doesn't have some of my all time favorite songs, but as a collection songs like Damaged Goods, Anthrax, and Ether just kill it. As another person pointed out the sum is greater than the individual tracks and I agree with that

Ether and Damaged Goods kick ass, not to mention 5.45 and Anthrax are exceptional closing tracks. Not a weak track on here.

One of the great albums of the late seventies. An excellent arty pop record with hints of talking heads, entertainment, is a superb record from start to finish. Simply essential.
