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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

Che colpo deve essere stato al momento della sua uscita "Outlandos d'amour" ! E si che nel 1978 le sorprese discografiche non mancavano… Credo che una simile concentrazione di hits ( "Roxanne", "So lonely", "Can't stand losing you", "Born in the 50's"… ) non la si aveva dai dischi dei Beatles. E' un disco imperfetto, questo; un diamante grezzo di pop secco, intelligente, sanguigno e ballabile insieme. Verrà la perfezione ( "Reggatta de blanc" ) e la perdita dell'ispirazione ( "Zeniatta Mondatta" ), la ricerca di nuove strade ( "Ghost in the machine" ) e la quadratura del cerchio ( "Synchronicity" ), prima dello scioglimento, ma nessun disco dei Police sarà più altrettanto eccitante, per me, di questo esordio.

An outstanding debut album full of fresh sound and energy.
The Police is not a band that I like to listen much but I recognize their talent.

Can't help to point out how the spoken part of "Be my girl - Sally" almost blows the unity and flow of the album.

When the seventies veered towards progressive and harder rock/metal The Police reflected music that fit more of my taste. One of my favorites of that decade.

One of the great British debut albums of the seventies. Outlandos d'amour is a wonderful new wave/punk record with hints of reggae and rock. It features some of The Police's best songs. Roxanne, is of course superb, one of the great all time singles, along with, so lonely, and, can't stand losing you. Off the lesser known tracks, next to you, hole in my life, peanuts, and, truth hits everybody, are the best ones. The blow up doll fetish, be my girl, is okay, but probably the weakest moment here. All in all, a great LP, ful of energy and grit. Excellent.

Very good debut. A little inconsistent but when they put it together there are some all time classics here.
