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 mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

Now this is the type of pop artist that should be played on the radio.

It's not bad for what it is and it's something decent to have on in the background. There are a few interesting things going on musically to break through the standard synth pop chord progs. Unfortunately there are too much of the "same old" ordinary repetitive chord progs on uninspired synths and repetitive banal lyrics over "four on the floor" in between the interesting moments to make this a super intriguing listen for me to revisit.

There are artists I find more interesting and enjoyable on the whole than Robyn in this genre. But it doesn't blatantly offend me like other pop artists where there's a clear and direct superior artist. It will be cool to see if she puts out an album this year and what it will sound like.

Fantastic album! This is one of my all-time favorites, actually. It's pop/dance perfection and should have been a much, much bigger hit.

There is no one putting out better dance-pop right now.

One of the most underrated pop albums ever. It takes everything wrong with modern pop, and makes it all work gorgeously.

IMO, Robyn's songs are more affecting than someone like Lady Gaga because they feel more heart-felt and earnest, not an easy feat when consistently putting out great dance pop. If you remember her from the 90s, forget what you know -- her sound is IDM-influenced nowadays.
