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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Dark, depressive, and the perfect funeral for Britpop. Glory Days is absolutely phenomenal

El album en conjunto lo disfruté más que Different Class, que también es muy bueno pero temas como The Fear, This is Hardcore, Dishes y Sylvia son algunos de mis favoritos de la banda. Un Disco bastante recomendable.

Excellent follow up to the epic "Different Class". The songwriting is just as sharp, although with a little less humor.

The follow up to the mega successful, different class. This is hardcore, is a darker twin to the more optimistic predecessor, but songwise it's just as good. The title track is amazing, one of Pulp's greatest songs. Other highlights include, the fear, a little soul, and, Sylvia. This is hardcore, is a fine album, dark with little specks of light shining through. Good stuff.

This album is as brilliant as it is manic depressive. Not like other Orphic Crooners who fall in love with their misery, within the lush and sprawling landscapes of this album there is an unsettling cry for help. It is a beautiful work with a Serge Gainsbourg influence, and is possibly the most uncompromising album I've ever heard. I'm thrilled that it has a following and getting the recognition it deserves

Your witty older brother has settled down with a family. His snide remarks generate a tense relationship with the family.

The brilliantly dark tone is set straight away..'This is the sound of someone losing the plot/Making out that they're ok when they're not.'
