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 has a mean average rating of 70.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 71.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

Fun Album! +5 points for "Waiting for a Girl Like You". Foreigner's Ballads are what makes them true standouts in their era.

There was a time back in the early eighties when this album lived on AOR radio. Nothing revolutionary or groundbreaking here - just catchy songs that one remembers the lyrics to decades later.

Easily their best album in terms of songs and consistency. There are a few duds but the majority of the record is unashamedly enjoyable commercial rock. A fun record.

When Foreigner abandoned any pretense of being a legit rock band and threw themselves without reservation into making lame hits for the mindless masses.

Urgent, Girl On the Moon, Juke Box Hero and Waiting For a Girl Like You are guilty pleasures and hold up as great ballads. The rest of the album is cheesy.

I had this album back in the day, when there were such things as albums. I didn't buy this when I transferred to cds (and subsequently to digital). I haven't missed it. This is dreck, popular dreck maybe, but still dreck.
