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)

My personal favorite Police album, mainly because of side 2, which kicks off with the stellar 'Walking on the Moon' and continues right on with it's signature new wave/reggae rock (the album roughly translates to 'white reggae') up to the frenetic closer 'No Time This Time'. Each musician has signature moments and showings on this record, from guitarist Andy Summer's iconic riff that defines 'Message in a Bottle', or bassist/vocalist Sting's hypnotic bassline on 'The Bed's Too Big Without You', to drummer Stewart Copeland's swinging hi-hat rhythm on 'Walking on the Moon'. Its musicians too virtuosic to be considered punk, but their aggression and volume too loud to be considered straightforward pop rock. The entire album is their best showing as a group in my opinion.
Essential cuts: Message in a Bottle, Bring on the Night, Walking on the Moon, The Bed's Too Big Without You, Does Everyone Stare, No Time This Time
Overall the quality of this album is similar to Outlandos D'Amour and it's similiar in consistency big tracks are great, but there's a lot of filler.
How possible so low position in the ranking?! This is definitely one of the peaks of entire music, despite on the tastes.
decent punk/new wave variation
Pilar do rock/pop dos anos 80.
Amazing first six songs, then tails off a bit.
Had the cassette of this when I was a teenager and damn near wore it out. Still my favorite Police album.
