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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.9/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.8.

It's indie and all that, but it's got a little extra rhythmic interest than the usual indie band. There also seems to be a bit of a new wave hangover influencing the music on a few songs, which blends surprisingly well. This is an an album only a Brit band could do, and it's the best blend of UK sounds from the time.

And on top of the cool, crunchy guitars, there's an almost Knopfler-esque understated complexity pervading both the lyrical and musical meter of the music. Quite cool.
