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)

Many New Wave bands who continued into the nineties (and beyond), and who kept releasing new music, disappointed me. Maybe because you can only fall in love for the first time once, or maybe because the angry young man gets religion and\or smokes so much his vocal chords can't belt out the tunes like they once did. (I'm looking at you, Ian McCulloch.) But XTC is different. This is actually my favorite XTC album. Every song is good, even the one "My Dictionary," about Andy Partidge's divorce. My favorite track is "Green Man", which is a Beatlesque orchestral paen to a pagan agricultural god. Come to think of it, maybe I've gotten religion too .
Favorite Tracks:The Last Balloon
River of Orchids, Easter Theatre and I Can't Own Her are the three best songs XTC ever did
Ahhhhh inconsistency :( my nemesis once again. I love some songs here, but some... not so much. Tis a shame. Overall it's still good though.
