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 73.2/100, a mean average of 71.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

"Sunburn" and "Muscle Museum" are the fan favourites, and for good reason, but my personal favourites are "Cave" and "Showbiz".

Call me crazy but I think this is Muse's most consistent album, even if it doesn't contain any of their top songs

Several killer songs but this is not the Muse I love. Straightforward pop rock/alt rock, not nearly as interesting as OOS

Muse's debut album is killer through the first 7 songs. Then it literally sucks the rest of the way.

It's alternative rock through and through and doesn't get the respect it deserves.

Title track and Sunburn are standout tracks.

Really any of the first seven songs are winners.

I place Showbiz 4th behind Absolution, 2nd Law, and Black Holes
