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 2% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

I cannot recommend this album with any more fervency than I already have. This is a classic in every sense of the word. This album has been an at least once per week listen for me for the last 40 years!!! (Perhaps I exaggerate a tad.) A remarkable achievement for a group of talented musicians. More than a novelty act, Devo had unestimatable music chops, most tellingly in the person of Mark Mothersbaugh (who has gone on outside the confines of Devo to create a vast musical footprint.) I won't belabor the point, just get this album!

It's a more approachable Remain In Light, but what it sacrifices to achieve that makes it less enjoyable and less influential.

We are devo is a fun little bit of weirdness but the broader concepts are not explored in enough depth.

Deserves to be mentioned with the other Punk-New Wave era classics such as London Calling and Marquee Moon.

Apparivano marziani i Devo nel 1978 e probabilmente lo erano, considerato come si vestivano, come si muovevano, le idee che avevano e soprattutto la musica che facevano. Robotica, schematica ma contemporaneamente calda; che colpisce il cervello così come i muscoli, schizzata ed immediata eppure estremamente curata.

Cool album from Devo. I clearly see what inspired Oingo Boingo.

Favorite tracks: Uncontrollable Urge, Mongoloid, Jocko Homo, Gut Feeling / (Slap Your Mammy), Come Back Jonee, Sloppy (I Saw My Baby Gettin')

Least favorite track: (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
