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 mean average rating of 87.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 88.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

I first discovered this browsing in HMV on Oxford in 1989. It started me on a path of Pixies fandom and a whole host of independent gems.

Este es sin duda uno de los discos más influyentes de la década, uno de momentos extraordinarios como "Monkey Gone To Heaven", una de las mejores canciones de la década. Pero es exagerado el pedestal en el que la comunidad "alternativa" lo intenta poner. Incluso pensando en el año 1989 tenemos mejores propuestas musicales (como el disco de Mano Negra que aporta una variedad musical mucho más ecléctica y consistente) o el The Stone Roses.

Aún así entra fácilmente entre los mejores discos de los 80s, pero para nada el mejor.
