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 has a mean average rating of 69.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 70.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

The debut of Blur is somewhat distinct in their repertoire. They haven't quite yet found their "Blur Sound". There are a couple of gems here though. The album opens strongly with "She's So High" and "There's No Other Way". It loses focus for a while. It closes by regaining some of the hit - making potential further evident on later releases.

Currently halfway through Blur's discography, and I think it's pretty obvious this one's sadly underrated

Blur's debut album is a lot better than some people give it credit for. It's got a nice big sound and some great songs. There's no other way, is very good, obviously influenced by the Manchester scene of the early nineties, but the rest of the album is fine too. Bang, sing, and, I'm so high, are also standouts. No, it isn't quite as great as some of their later albums would be but, leisure, is fine.

Great way to get a career started. Loses a bit of steam towards the end, but still - there's quite a few strong tracks to be found on here.

That post-graduation Summer party with all of your mates, but it absolutely reeks of acid and a refusal to grow out of your adolescence.

There are a handful of tracks on here that are great, but this is a seriously underwhelming start for one of the greatest bands of the 90's.

Great album. Idk why Damon Albarn doesn't like it. The only low points are a few songs where they're trying to do "There's No Other Way" again. Best songs are "She's So High," "There's No Other Way," "Sing," "Repetition," "Wear Me Down," and "Birthday."
