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)

The greatest David Bowie album not made by David Bowie. 9/10!
A dark and introspective listen that also has flourishes of colour and has some very high quality sounds that are fresh to this day. The soundscape we are treated to is this gritty classic 80's synth style sound that has these flares of instrumentation which adds little tangents to the music. This makes the tracks feel grand and very in depth and makes them ahead of its time. To this day the music still sounds phenomenal as it is just so clean and it flows brilliantly which is primarily down to the production. This makes for a smooth listen for us which allows us to just sit back and enjoy his musical stylings. Lyrically, it is a joy to explore and the vocal, while limited, shines on several occasions where it is a nice contrast to the lighter moments. Overall, a very good record that gives you the classic 80's sound but with a unique twist that makes it an extremely enjoyable experience.
Very interesting album varied stuff, not boring. Relisteneable..
major beat prog piano
Two outstanding tracks. The rest is down to personal taste.
Amazing album which is essential listening. Uncertain Smile is an outstanding track.
This is an excellent alnum which even in 2019 sounds fresh, well it does to me!
Production is first class, favourite track has to be 'Uncertain Smile' where Jools Holland provides some excellent piano.
While occasionally vocally limited, the introspective nature of soul mining compels it to success.
Very good record. Just a little behind, Infected, in my opinion, but still a wholly unique album. Good.
Such an underrated album. I can't believe it's ranked number 18. One of the best albums from the new wave/post punk era. The music is dark, but beautifuly arranged and interesting. Please give it a try.
