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 68.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 68.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Maybe it's because I love Talking Heads so much but I actually thought this was pretty decent. There are some awkward moments and moments that simply don't work but David Byrne's songwriting reaches new heights and the instrumentation is unique and fun as ever.

Liked it, but definitely for completists.

Of course it's no Remain In Light or Fear of Music, but it's certainly a good deal better than Little Creatures or True Stories. Doesn't deserve to be the lowest rated Talking Heads album here.

Here they attempt to recapture their old post-punk sound while at the same time remaining commercial. It didn't really work that well for them on either front.
