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)

Not a bad album but better than On the Third Day, Eldorado or Face the Music? not a chance, ranked way to high.
I like the sci-fi theme of this album and it shows transition of the ELO to the 80s sound. There are some weak tracks, but most of them are good.
This Band surely knows how to make catchy and ingenious pop-rock tunes.
Incrível viagem! Um dos melhores da década!

Interesting concept album with lynne piling on synthase, 21st century man is lovely but the vocal effects diminish it for me. Twightlight and hold on tight are the highlights, another heartbreak is instrumental dross.
A "Concept Album". If you can get over how silly the concept is (Jeff Lynne plays a man who gets sent into the future year of 2095 and then hates it and wants to go back), it's a lot of fun, and arguably ahead of the curve on synth driven sci-fi music. I love "Julie Don't Live Here Anymore", which is a bonus track on some reissues of the album.
This could be one of my guilty pleasure. I have to tell that this is one of my alltime favorite albums. When I first listened to it, I was young boy and I was really impressed about it and it never gone. The style, the sound, the lyrics it is so 80s and untill this day I really love that album.
one of the best albums of the 80's from one of the best bands of all time
