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 7% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

The best Doves album. Last broadcast, is even better than debut, lost souls. Some great songs here, especially, satellites, which has got to be the Doves greatest song. An excellent album.

What makes this such a great album is the atmospherics produced. It captures a real sense of nostalgia when returning to listen to it these days.

I remember all the fuss about this album... but now I can't remember what it sounds like. What does that say?

Good but somewhere around the middle the album loses direction and becomes unengaging.

Good album. With few bad tracks and ones like There Goes The Fear and The Sulphur Man this album is more than enough for any fans of Elbow.

The Sulphur Man is a wonder of production, such an open, expansive sound, widescreen, if you will. As much a part of the song's brilliance as the songwriting itself.
