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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.2/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Un disco con meno pretese rispetto ad altri lavori degli Xtc e forse proprio per questo più godibile.

A very good XTC album. It's full of great little pop songs. It maybe slightly overlong but it's a decent record which is still growing on me with each listen. Good adult pop, whatever that means.

This is not my favorite XTC record but it come in a close second. The production is bright and the material is poppy yet intelligent. Highly recommended!

Oranges, yes. Lemons, no. Fine poppy alternative album for those who like elvis costello.

This album is good from start to finish and is a favorite. It is so poppy and as many note, Beatlesque. It is probably their most accessible / college rock / alternative offering.
