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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

You can still hear pangs of their previous band on this record, but more clearly moving towards synths.
Overall a great mix of the two sounds as New Order continues to evolve. Definitely one of my favorite albums in the New Order discography. Leave Me Alone is my all-time favorite New Order song.

Favorite tracks: Leave Me Alone, Age of Consent, Your Silent Face, The Village

New order tries to reach a new sound, on wich they suceed, but the end result don't compares with Joy Division, and only reaches that niche of new wave bands, Depeche, Duran, Blondie, never growing out of It to be their own thing.

First I wanna say I think it’s really respectful that they changed the band name.
You can hear they went slightly into a different direction with this new band, rather synth pop than new wave.

One of the greatest albums ever. End to end, great songs in their unique blend of edgy rock and electronica.

Went straight from Closer to this album, which probably isn't fair.

Bass lines are still fantastic, but the synth pop and vocals makes it seem frivolous compared to Joy Divison.

Well-written and just an overall impressive album fron New Order which merges synthpop with post-punk and new-wave influences to a wondrous effect. "Power, Corruption and Lies" houses some truly great tracks, my only gripe is with the sometimes grating vocals.

Not quite as good as Joy Division's stuff, but still, I am pretty damn impressed. Highly recommended.
