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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.9/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Excellent synthpop record ! Very melodic, innovative and cohesive complete with their trademark dry wit . "i'm the operator with my pocket calculator !"

I always asked myself why exactly I was listening to this album, but somehow I kept returning to it. It’s the most rhythmically creative album by them if you ask me, to the point it becomes rather hypnotizing. Paradoxically it is also the most melodically oriented album by them. It is certainly their strangest.

Love the state of the art computer in the photo on the album cover! Reminds me of my School physics lab. All joking aside, when this album came out there was no such thing as a 'home computer' as we know it today. The laptop and tablet hadn't even been invented. The album was ahead of its time and the minamilist sound creates an atmosphere which could be the inside of a computer at work. Personal favourite is Home Comuter where the Mini Moog bass line and Prophet Five pad depict an eerie clinical landscape over a simple but punchy drum machine loop.

Another highly influential Kraftwerk album although I don't think it's quite as good as, The Man machine. Still, a record far ahead of it's time and a great late night LP.
