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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.4/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

I’ve always felt the Buzzcocks were a bit underrated compared to their other British peers. This contains all their great singles.

I just don't see the appeal of this proto-pop punk album. Revolutionary, not very bad , but not my cup of tea.

Buzzcocks were never massive unfortunately, falling into that in between territory being too pop for the punk scene and too punk for the pop scene. But here we have an almost perfect album from start to finish with not a single weak track or even moment. Pete Shelly’s brilliant fusion of melodies and punk along with everyday humour is quite simply unparalleled and which set the blueprint for catchy pop punk for the next forty years

Great collection of punk songs with a little bit of a power pop edge. Still prefer The Clash's self-titled to this, but this is enjoyable in its worst moments and pretty great at its best.

I almost certainly would have appreciated this more as a 14-year-old.

Right up there with the greats of punk like The Sex Pistols and Ramones

A lot of the Buzzcocks best stuff was their singles, so this compilation is essential

The best compilation album, along with New Order(substance) made.....
An essential, because nearly every song was never recorded on any
Studio album. Overall I dislike greatest hits albums, unless you like a
Handful of songs from the particular artist.
This album is a big exception to that rule. Early, influential punk, classic alt.
At its finest.
