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)

Classic U2. Rating (82.08)
The experimentation takes them to a different direction, but there is nothing to worry about. If you like guitar, you will like this album. For me this ranks slightly ahead of "Joshua Tree". Overall, 70/100.
I liked this album a lot when it was released, and maybe even more now.
Still a good album. One of the best U2 records.
You forget now how amazing a change this was at the time. It is full of great tracks and still stands up today.
Some good songs on the album, but sure as hell not in the top 100 albums of all time...
One of better U2 album
Really good, one of the better U2 albums.
Favorites: One, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, So Cruel, The Fly, Mysterious Ways.
My favorite U2 album the day it came out sounded so fresh and it still does today, stand out tracks one, mysterious ways trying to through ur arms around world wild horses so cruel and Zoo Station right off the bat asks the question are u ready for this? YES
Top Tracks: "So Cruel", "The Fly", "Ultra Violet (Light My Way)"
Amazing album, U2's best. A beautiful combination of heart-wrenching personal drama and flippant embraces of ironic 90s culture. Ultra Violet is U2's best song, in my opinion. Manages to balance between something deeply beautiful and incredibly facetious. Masterpiece.
