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 78.4/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

Such was their strength in depth of tracks for The Stone Roses album, most of the ones here were instead placed on B sides, apart from the hits "Elephant Stone", "One Love" & "What The World Is Waiting For/Fools Gold". Incredibly "Sally Cinnamon" didn't even get on either album. A good example is "What The World is Waiting For" which was scheduled to be released as the A side, yet Silvertone felt the B side "Fools Gold" was too good resulting in the eventual double A side.

I am a huge fan of their first album. The second isn’t as bad as people make it out to be. I can’t believe I’ve been depriving myself of this album. I don’t know why it’s called a compilation, I guess it’s a bunch of B sides. I really like this “compilation” and it deserves a higher ranking. It’s consistent and the songs are solid. This sounds like a follow up to the first album.

They had it all at one point. Everything. Not sure how many bands could record something like where angles play and not have it make the album.

Although it's only a compilation, and nowhere near as iconic and definitive as The Stone Roses, I still really love this album. It's classic Roses: twee and jangly, and I love that. There's so many tracks here which should have been on The Stone Roses but were replaced by better tracks. All in all, this is basically the excess of what should have been on The Stone Roses but wasn't as good in practical. So, it's just the same stuff but not as good. And I like that. (Don't know why Second Coming ranks higher on BEA, it's nowhere near as good as this album.)

Key tracks: Elephant Stone, Fools Gold, Where Angels Play, Mersey Paradise, Standing Here
Key lyric: 'Don't count your chickens, 'cos they're never gonna hatch. You can't catch a monkey with a shotgun and a sack.'
