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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.2/100, a mean average of 76.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

Lyrics here are quite good, but generic indie 80s instrumentals (with every song sounding the same) is making listening to this album less entertaining.

An album that really stood the test of time. Every song is great, no filler to be found. Clever lyrics as well.

Approachable enough, but pretty unremarkable on first listen. Apparently this album is about the lyrics, but the music didn't compel me to actually listen to them.

Musically the material is weak, lyrically it's great.

Great poetry! Such a drag Lloyd Cole didn't released anything as good as this ever after.
