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 Bayesian average rating of 72.1/100, a mean average of 71.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 8.7.

I love the dark eurodance vibes. Less consistent than all their previous records, but the boys were onto something here.

An underrated record from the Pet Shop Boys that starts off surprisingly strong with its energetic electronic / house roots but becomes slightly schmaltzy post Radiophonic. Very likeable though.

Good synthpop/dance-pop album. Best 10 songs average is 85,8/100 and the album can get good 85/100. Best songs are "I don't know...", "You only tell me..." and "New york city boy" all 90/100, followed by "Vampires" 85/100. All other songs in the region of 75-80/100.

These two sounded so bouncy and fun during the 90s. This like the party after the life experiences of 'Very'. 'I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Any More' and 'New York City Boy' fly over anything on 'Bilingual'.
