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)

The album's guitar work is particularly impressive, with Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd weaving intricate and atmospheric melodies. The songs are also well-written and catchy, with lyrics that are both poetic and evocative.
A fantastic post punk release that truly captures the essence of what makes this genre so unique and special. They achieve this through some absolutely stunning guitar solos such as on See No Evil, Venus and Elevation. The peak of the guitar work is on the phenomenal Marquee Moon which is in the debate for one of the greatest songs of all time. Everything comes together brilliantly on the title track with the drum, bass, guitar and vocal all giving outstanding performances. No other song on this album reaches this standard but they are all still of a good quality resulting in a very good listen. I do think the vocal is a huge divider between the people who like this album and the people who don't as it is quite polarising. Personally, I love it and it is one of the highlights of the album for me with songs like Guiding Light only being elevated from his performance. Overall, the instrumental and musical quality is evident on here as we are treated to a consistent and enjoyable post punk experience.
Overrated album. I like more at 1977th albums Iggy Pop, Sex Pistols, Stranglers, MX-80, Wire, Chrome 🤘🏻😎
Rockin’ hard but in a very poetic way.
Strangely beautiful combination.
Probably the best album to come out of late 70s New York, so many great guitar moments on here. You can really hear the influence this had on the Strokes
Great album start to finish, there are no weak tracks and vocal delivery fits perfectly with post punk instrumentals.
The coolest, best and rawest post-punk album of all time. It is progressive and is performed with high quality and style.
A true classic album. Wish they had made more than they did.
Raw but inspired. Must have.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
