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 88.2/100, a mean average of 86.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

When the album is so good, I can't give a proper review to it. It's just....................... really good.

Good album, still can't understand all the hype, considering it is ranked #1 album of the 80's on this site.

A veritable smorgasbord -- blows hot but sometimes cold - inspirational and influential in part - rumbustious as roast beef and Yorkshire pud- satisfyingly gluttonous as gobs of gorgeous pork crackling- just once safe as a bag of popcorn-and very occasionally as dreary as a soggy sandwich left out in a rain storm floating around bits of cold hot dog covered in out of date mustard drippings.

Oh what a ratly feast

A slow burner that achieved cult status later in life not unlike velvet underground. But I remain to be convinced that its such high standing is merited although I still think it's a very good album.

Up there with the most influential albums of all time. Personally, I am not that much into the more aggressive stuff (especially the vocals on some songs are too much for me), but their softer/melodic side is pure gold.

Really not bad. The style is not for me, but I still enjoyed it a lot.

A masterpiece, no doubt about it. It’s good to see my top 5 tracks here are all rated in the 90s, although I think Wave Of Mutilation should be included in that elite group too. Surfer Rosa is in with a good shout, but Doolittle has to be the Pixies best work.

Mind-blowing. This thing sounds like nothing else before it, and it's influence in the music industry of the following years is obvious.

It is a very good album so far I can say. I like very much Debaser and Monkey Gone To Heaven and Hey. It is a little bit short for 39 minutes but the time is it worth so far. Very shaping the generation of its time I can understand.
