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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.4/100, a mean average of 72.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

The singles are awesome highlighted by the superb “Still Life “ but unfortunately there are a few tracks here that run too long and quite frankly wear out their welcome

Good but far from great as a complete piece

A tad disappointed with this after the excellent Primary Colours. To be honest this just sounds like the Psychedelic Furs to my ears.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Not the most original of sounds but they certainly know their stuff.

Lovely ride and altogether pleasant album. Could be a grower. Bass on Oceans Burning was great near the end. Best songs are You Said and I could See Through You.
