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 78.0/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

This album met my mood better today than in my previous efforts to check out Hüsker Dü. Definitely poppier than I remember.

Hüsker Dü continue to push the formula they presented on Zen Arcade, and though it is less successful in its efforts, New Day Rising is a great album nonetheless.

Too loud and too aggressive for my taste, but I could find out few fine tracks, like Celebrated summer.

Clearly a huge influence on later alternative/grunge bands, this album should totally be ranked higher on this site.
