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 23% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.5/100, a mean average of 73.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

The atmosphere on this album is potent, in part due to the synergy between each instrument and their respective players. I feel bad for these guys, they're constantly written off as the guys in the 80s with the goofy haircuts.

A Flock of Seagulls were clever musicians who produced some timeless classic eighties songs. One of the differences with Flock of Seagulls to many of the eighties new wave synth bands was their use of a real drummer rather than opting for Roland TR808 or Linn Drum. It is the driving and interesting rhythm section which I love about Flock of Seagulls. Not a weak track on the album and great guitar work on every track to complement the rhythm section and synth washes. My favourite track is d.n.a

An above average new wave album with a interesting UFO theme.
