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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.5/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Okay. This is epic. We couldn't ask for a better goodbye from The Smiths. I think they ended It at the right time.

I thought I had figured them out after listening two of their albums... glad I decided to listen this one. I’m relieved they pretty much left post punk and went in a more soft rock/alternative rock direction with even a couple of hints at baroque pop. I always thought they were actually never a post punk band. They sound much more in their element on this album.
Need to listen to it again better, maybe I’ll turn it to a 8/10.

A very underrated Smiths album in my opinion. It's not quite The Queen is Dead but it's very ambition in its lyrical content and production, more so than their earliest work and is probably my 2nd favourite.
Favourite songs: Girlfriend in a Coma, Paint a Vulgar Picture, Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before

The Smiths are another band that managed to pass me by in my peak music discovery days. But overall, this is pretty great.
