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)

A superb collection of Joy Division unreleased tracks , "Glass" which previously appeared on the 'Factory Sample' album , a live Velvet Underground cover "Sister Ray" ( off their 1968 album 'White Light/White Heat' ) and a live recording of Joy Divisions final ever concert at Birmingham University May 2 1980
Of particular note is the only live performance of "Ceremony" which of course would go on to be New Orders 1st single exactly 12 months later
The unreleased stuff is great, the live material is mediocre
The studio outtakes are mostly very good songs which could have made it onto regular albums. I particularly enjoy Ice Age and Something Must Break.
I also think Sister Ray cover captures the spirit of the original.
The concert is standard bad quality and technical problems, but you can't forget the fact that this is their last, so it has some special significance.
A brilliant Joy Division compilation. Exercise One and Sound Of Music are my favourites from this album.
The sessions could have been album takes and the live recordings are powerful and exciting. Essential Joy Division material.
And yes, that is a Sister Ray cover (!)

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
