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 78.7/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

This might be the most schizophrenic album of all time. Side 1 would fit along with earlier Police songs, especially with Synchronicity I and II and Mother. Fun, irreverent, complex.

Side 2 is Sting rushing out the door to make his first solo album, eagerly looking forward to the time he could make easy listening albums without a band to get in the way of him soft rocking his way to middle age.

You can almost hear Andy Summers’ and Stewart Copeland’s eyes rolling to the back of their heads on Wrapped Around Your Finger or Tea In The Sahara.

La calidad de las canciones de este disco le dan el nivel que podría tener un recopilatorio. Mi favorito de Police.

I get The Police now. Really inventive. Also as a side note, a lot of the songs sound pretty similar to King Crimson on Discipline.

A stack of top-tier tracks hampered only by a couple of significant question marks.

Their strongest set of songs, complete sting domination. Though I prefer outlandus the song quality is perhaps stronger here. Couple of weak filler.
