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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 74.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

Excellent gothic dark rock album. Best tracks are Vision Thing, You Don't See Me and More. The video of More is worth a watch, great inspiration to a workout on a treadmill!

Outstanding dark, gothic album with great riffs and wicked lyrics. I wouldn't have though Jim Steinman and Sisters of Mercy made for a good marriage, but the two Steinman-penned songs, More and When You Don't See Me, come across perfectly. The rest is also excellent, especially the title cut and Detonation Boulevard.

Very good gothic rock/hard rock album. Best 10 songs average is 91,9/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Best and full scoring song is "More". Followed by "Vision thing" 95/100 and next "Detonation boulevard", "Something fast", "Doctor jeep" and "I was wrong" all 90/100. The two other songs pretty good 85/100. Favourite!

It's okay. But not very representative of The Sisters Of Mercy, Floodland would be a better choice.
