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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.6/100, a mean average of 80.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

A classic talking heads album. This defined their sound for several years until David Byrne became more of a solo artist with as fellow bandmates playing what he told them to play.
A much better album than the poppy Speaking in Tongues and nowhere near as depressing as Fear of Music.

A completely average Talking Heads record, consistent to a fault.

The David Bowie influence in his voice starts to become a bit too apparent. Musically it is in the same vein as their debut, so it's enjoyable enough.

Forgot the trouble, that's the trouble!

Not as memorable as their first, but still a decent album.

I'm just listening to this, and must say I like it far more than the first record. Cool vibe and 'Artists Only' is just amazing.

I think "Talking Heads: 77" has better high points, but "More Songs About Buildings And Food" is a more consistent record overall; taking their strenghts and making more solid songs throughout. Amazing!
