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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.2/100, a mean average of 83.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

Alright compilation. Some of there all time killer tracks but a few others I'd classify as more in the filler category
my favorite cure album. by far. so far. it contains 7 non-album (...) tracks so it deserves a life here on BEA on its own. someone said that side 2 sucks, but I really disagree.
If you are just beginning to listen to the Cure, then this is a great introduction. Songs are taken from early albums, so you will still need to check out later albums: Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me and Disintegration are the best.
The first 7 tracks are killers. The rest is much worse, but it's still a good review of Cure's early days. Well, and Charlotte Sometimes is there.
The CD version has more songs, but this alone is a godly compilation. The Hanging Garden and A Forest are the best tracks.
For some reason this is ranked lower than the original version, which has LESS tracks (cuts out 10:15, Play For Today, Other Voices, and A Night Like This) either way, this is a lot better than the other compilations by The Cure. This one focuses on their overall work, not just pop songs like Galore does.
Good intro to the Cure's early work.
My first introduction into Indie or Punk rock was this outstanding compilation
Very decent compilation of their signles up to its date of release (1986).
This album also known as staring at the sea

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 :(
