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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

Cannot decide between this and Pornography. Both are masterpieces of the darkest and the most "goth" Cure period. Holy Hour against One Hundred Years, All Cats Are Gray against A Strange Day and so on...

One of their earliest albums, this may be their best. Not bloated and overlong like some of their later "masterpieces" (e.g. Disintegration, Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me), this album reveals the genius of the band, and especially Robert Smith. Lovely and svelte, from front to back. Bravo!

This is my favourite of the earlier darker records. It's consistent all the way through with stunning moments such as, the holy hour, all cats are grey, and the title track. I always found, seventeen seconds, a little uneven, but this is right on it from start to finish. A great band record, when The Cure were still a band and not a Robert Smith solo project.

Dark and moody, this is The Cure as non-fans imagine them after looking at a picture of Robert Smith. Best song is between the surprisingly frantic "Primary" and "All Cats Are Grey".

One of the greatest Gothic Rock albums of all time, the title track is especially powerful.

flat, hypnotic, gloomy.
not consistently as good as seventeen seconds - but still a cool goth-record.
