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)

I think it's a sign of growing old that I like this album, which I can't imagine 15, 20 or even 30-year-old me saying.
Awesome final studio album before they disbanded. So glad I saw them live in '83 and again in '01; what a treat.
Álbum forte, com visão de futuro. Percebe-se elementos muito usados em bandas post-punk e de rock alternativo (como o U2 e o R.E.M - já citado por um colega)
One of the most positive Records ever ,No weak tracks here åt all .Perpaps one of the best records ever after all Radioheads amazing albums
Roxy Musics 8th and final studio in Avalon full stops their career on an absolute high note , I hate it when the greats go out with a whimper (I'm looking at you R.E.M)
As a child of the 80's Avalon was always there but I never really considered it a classic album until recently which of course it is . No bad track here , even the 2 instrumental tracks fit perfectly in rhythm with the over all album flow
As a side note the album cover features Brian Ferry's girlfriend wearing a medieval helmet and holding a Falcon whilst overlooking a lake in Ireland next to which much of the album was written , I only mention this as I always wondered where the cover originated , its rather beautiful IMO . Oh and Avalon continued Roxy Musics fetish to feature a woman on its album cover ("Roxy Music" 72 Tick , "For Your Pleasure" 73 Tick , "Stranded" 73 tick , "Country Life" 74 Tick Tick , "Siren" 75 Tick , "Viva Roxy Music" 77 Tick , "Manifesto" 79 Tick , "Flesh And Blood" 80 Tick Tick)
70 Going Out At The Top Of Your Games Out Of 100
Absolutely brilliant album! Not a weak track in sight. From the superb opener to the amazing title track through to 'Tara' this is first class.
Absolut Class, goosebumps with Powerfull headphones
This album was made as the background noise for lovin'.
Apologies for my random first comment. This is a great album, a fine example of romantic art rock from the 1980s.
Stylish and smooth but upon visiting the lyric page just a little bit vacuous.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
