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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.2/100, a mean average of 74.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

An energetic and enjoyable album from Magazine. It's a surprisingly overlooked record, but it's full of good songs. Maybe not as strong as, real life, but decent enough.

A step down in quality from their first 2 records but there are still gems to be found here, notably Song From Under the Floorboards

The first time I listened to this disc, and the overall impression is not the best. One or two songs worthy of note the rest very average. :(
