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 only problem with this album is that once 'I am the fly' is in your head it won't leave.
Not as cohesive and impressive as Pink Flag, but still good album.
This feels significantly less inspired and creative than Pink Flag. Mostly straightforward punk rock with a couple forgettable delvings into some foreign territory
Great follow up after Pink Flag their sound evolved still minimalistic but a change in tempo that builds tension.
What an album, the best post punk i have ever heard
Three tracks I like, Too Late, Outdoor Miner and I Am The Fly. The rest is OK.
Wire reinvented and still managed to equalize the quality of their perfect debut. That says miles about them as a band.
Decent, nothing compared to Pink Flag.
I Am The Fly
I actually think, chairs missing, is a better record than, pink flag. It really sounds more fully formed than the previous record. Don't get me wrong, I love, pink flag, but this one has more focus and better songs. Genius stuff.
