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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.8/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

Still good, but much more hit or miss than their previous efforts.

Songs of faith and devotion marks the the final album in Depeche mode's golden era. This album has the most rock influenced sound in their career.

The follow up to, violator, songs of faith and devotion, is another excellent Depeche Mode album. Kicking off with the magnificent, I feel you, it sees the band embracing rock more than ever before. Other highlights include, walking in my shoes, in your room, and the soul ballad, condemnation. It slightly runs out of steam towards the end, but it's a small quibble. The late eighties/early nineties was Depeche Mode's imperial phase and this album, along with, music for the masses, and violator, are their best records.

IDK... feel like this had a lot of hit and miss stuff on it. I feel like they were trying new ideas that didn't quite work (vocal style didn't match a more modern/almost hip-hop beats). That's my opinion of course. You are entitled to yours.

I think this is their fourth best, yet still a classic.

Though it's not Violator by any means, it's a damn good album with great songs! Very interesting how the Mode branched out to natural instruments and took influences from other genres

Almost as good as Violator, but not quite as gripping.
