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)

Quite good art-pop album with obvious highlights - powerful Red Rain, one of the best 80s hits Sledgehammer, magnificent In Your Eyes.
It’s impossible to criticize Gabriel’s voice, which is impeccable. In Your Eyes is a legitimately great track. The rest of the songs fall into two categories: one, the radio-friendly pop song that stretches way longer than a pop song should; and two, the gratuitously weird song that sounds experimental for the sake of maintaining the weird British progressive bona fides.
A BIG album with full of bangers, say no more.

Listening to this album again after some time and looking at some of the reviews on this site and others I have the following comments. Firstly do not judge this album by the the 'commercial hits', 'Sledgehammer' and 'Big Time', these are not the best tracks on the album. Several listens are required to appreciate the other tracks, particularly 'In Your Eyes' which is an immaculately crafted piece of music, Gabriel's voice is perfection. 'Don't Give Up' is worth the price of the album on it's own, 'Red Rain' an outstanding opening track. Don't give up on this album, it's one of the best.
Great album by Peter Gabriel. It is impressive to see the range of this artist with how he was able to have incredibly catchy despite his prog rock starts. Loved the collab with Kate Bush.
A carreira solo do Peter Gabriel é forte como sua estada no Genesis! Gigante!
This is a perfect example for the sellout of an serious artist and the power of a mainstream hit. To be honest... this album includes a poor disco hit single... (Sledgehammer), an average ballald (Red Rain) saved by Kate Bush, one - only one - mentionable song (Red Rain).... and the rest is... boaring.
His Best Album
Un exuberante despliegue de conglomerados rítmicos muy propios de los músicos populares, con tintes experimentales bien equilibrados.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
