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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.8/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

This album has a very unique sound, therefore I just loved it. Moody and jazzy, especially the guitars created a very haunted sonic experience
Disco tranquilo que se deja escuchar y bastante disfrutable
ALL SONGS ARE MY FAV. TRACKS!
My favorite of their "Holy Trinity".
I change my mind. Laughing Stock is better. It goes more in depth into the ideas presented on Spirit of Eden and thus is more fulfilling and complete.
Almost as good as Spirit of Eden, which is impressive. Laughing Stock doesn't do anything that their previous record didn't do better, but it still has some amazing passages and shouldn't just be considered the album they did after Spirit of Eden.
A staggering blend between art and lullaby, somehow it works as both.
Another beautiful late Talk Talk album. Maybe not quite up to Spirit of Eden, but probably more varied and broad.
Very elegant and beautiful album.
First of all, Spirit of Eden is a masterpiece. An achievement way too special to achieve two times in a row.
Laughing Stock is a solid good record, but is it as good as Spirit of Eden? Not possible.
More abstract and ambient which makes it different. But also more pretentious and less focused.
For many artists this would be their peak but not for Talk Talk.
