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)

I love The Modern Dance. I find it positively accessible compared to some of his more recent stuff.
Not for me, I think that I settle for little less challenging albums...
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Good album a little bit average but ok. I give it a good 85 for interesting noise rock and punk rock like the Sex Pistols.
This album was surprisingly fun to listen to, although I found the last ten minutes or so more of a trial than I typically like.
One of my all time favorites. Brilliant! A masterpiece.
I first heard this masterpiece in 1980 at universty, and although it sounds relatively tame in 2017, in 1978 'The Modern Dance' was a radical revolutionary new kind of music, birthed in punk - soaked in experimentation and sophistication.
It has dated well, an exceptional work.
A great post punk album. Similar in attitude and presentation with Joy Division's, unknown pleasures. The modern dance, is a fantastic record of alienation, frustration, and anger, and delivered with a swagger. There is no point in picking out individual tracks, it all needs to be listened together in one sitting, like most great albums. A classic late seventies LP.
A challenging album, not to everyone taste. If the listener pays attention it's capable of creating a soundscape environment unlike anything you've heard before. Highly recommended.
I was so excited about this on the first listen and on many more to come!
Not quite a masterpiece to me yet, but I could see it growing on me more.
