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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.8/100, a mean average of 81.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

An album I hold very dearly to my heart as one my first ever loves of music. In terms of British indie music this is as good as it gets in the 21st century. Full of heart, energy and unbridled joy it stands the test of time as kids get older in to their late teens and experience the exact same moments.
As an old fart, this is Still not my music, but I respect the energy. The last track was the best. #955 in 1001 Albums listening project(2021 ed.) (Positive)
What a way to announce yourselves. Everyone of a certain age remembers in 2005 when the video for I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor appeared. The album continues on in the same light. Some great lyrics on the album, my picks being "Yeah I'd love to tell you all my problem, you're not from New York City you're from Rotherham" and "His bird said it's amazing though so all that's left, is the proof that love's not only blind but deaf" from Fake Tales of San Francisco. Cheeky, unmistakably British lines throughout this excellent album. My highlights are I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor, When The Sun Goes Down, Mardy Bum and A Certain Romance.
Pretty close to the perfect representation of what a rock record should be: youthful cheekiness and recklessness, fueled by a loud and driving sound. I love the clever turns of phrase that pop up when least expected (I doubt she does receipts).
A couple songs drag in spots, but that’s minor criticism. This is a fun and great album.
Working class lads, going on night-outs in the early noughties.
Very true to life lyrics, mundane subjects put through the prism of youth energy
If you are looking for profound statements on society it might be better looking elsewhere, however if you are looking for a fun, dirty, lager infused, trying to pull at the bar you cant go wrong with this.
What a debut!
The fact that this was a debut was a really terrific indicator of things to come from these guys. Really fun album that puts the AM sound on display.
The album is consistently decent all the way through.
Divertidísimo. Jóvenes y con desparpajo.
En los tiempos que salió este disco, bien hacia falta un grupo dando guerra con sus guitarras. Sonando a punk, garage,...
Muy disfrutable con algunas canciones realmente muy logradas como When the Sun Goes Down, I bet you..., Red lights...
Subir volumen y a gozar!!!!
Divertido do começo ao fim!
Du bon rock britannique comme on l'aime. Une sonorité et une voix très reconnaissable pour ce groupe très représentatif du style britannique.
