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 79.8/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

This is amazing. I don't understand how I'd never heard of them before or how they were never huge. To me it sounds like if U2 were a little bit more like the Bunnymen, Joy Division or Faith-era The Cure. It sounds very commercial and not very post-punk to me, so give it a listen rock fans. It has a hidden track at the end!
I'd buy it just for the beautiful gatefold cover!
For cuss sake. That closer, man. Cuss.
it's not what i would call "post-punk" - in my opinion it's more likely gothic-wave. but nontheless it's a fantastic collection of gloomy, wistful and at the same time uplifting songs. the often i hear it, the better it is.
Certainly one of the greatest ever post-punk albums. An under rated gem!
Very underrated. I'd think that many forum users would highly enjoy this album.
For me a kind of watered down cross between Echo and The Bunnymen and The Comsat Angels. I remember seeing Adrian Borland perform at the Melkweg club in Amsterdam in the 1980s...The Dutch crowd loved him, but his tepid pychedelia left me a bit cold. Not bad, but not particularly good either.
you want high quality post Punk ? listen to this album !
