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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.6/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

The album starts with 3 brilliant raucous Pogues classics before the gem of Fairytale.
Metropolis then throttles back before the next batch of brilliance and a couple of high quality medleys, Streets of Sorrow particularly forlorn and beautiful.
The attack and quality drop a notch for the final 4, although the Broad Majestic Shannon peddles a lovely reverie before the brutal truth of Worms.
So an album of 3 halves then.
Solid album if not as good for me as Rum, Sodomy and the Lash. Fairytale of New York is the best ever Christmas song. 100%.
Everything about my personality says I should not like The Pogues, yet I love the hell out of them.
P.S. Fairytale of New York is the best Christmas song ever written.
Anyone who tells you they don't enjoy Fairy Tale of New York year-round is either a scrooge or a liar.
Favorite Tracks:Bottle Of Smoke, Streets Of Sorrow/Birmingham Six, Lullaby Of London, The Battle March Medley/Sit Down By The Fire, The Broad Majestic Shannon
Era impossibile bissare la furia festaiola di quel capolavoro che era stato "Rum, sodomy and the lash" e nondimeno questo disco quasi ci riesce: le canzoni mediamente valgono, in quanto a scrittura, quelle dell'album precedente ma una produzione leggermente troppo pulita impedisce loro di raggiungere lo status di capolavoro, solo sfiorato quindi.
Another album whose appeal I understand, yet doesn't really appeal much to me.
This, for me, is the best Pogues album, just shading Rum, Sodomy and the Lash. The stand out track is Turkish Song of the Damned but very track has something going for it.
Just a superb album.
Another good album, and although, fairytale of new York, is a fantastic song, it shouldn't really be on this album. You don't want to be listening to Christmas songs in july. Overall, it's not as good, rum, sodomy, but probably the Pogues second best album.
