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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.7/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

The sound of this album is extremely grating and unpleasant, but props to them for intentionally creating that sound I guess.

I appreciate the Philip K Dick put-to-music aesthetic but it's hard to actually give this album any more of my time than the once and only time I've heard it. I certainly won't be rushing to hear it again anytime soon.

"cringe" The sound on this album is so sickening ! and don't get me wrong, I dig all things experimental, industrial and post-punk, but this is a real mess. "You've been duplicated", "Zero time" and "Critical mass" are quite cool, but I think I'll stick to Cabaret Voltaire...
