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 2% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.1/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

lyrically brilliant album which flows really well and stands head and shoulders above their c86 counterparts

Heard what I thought was the full original album, turned out it was a special edition with extra tracks so I found it rather repetitive. Will edit my rating when I get round to listening to the actual tracklist! Stuck between The Smiths and The Stone Roses.

I should really like this album, it's pretty much a mixture of Smiths (early) and Joy Division, with some originality to it. But I don't think I get along with it as much as I should. It gets tedious real early into listening. And it's repetitive. And his voice is like a tedious Ian Curtis/Morrissey crossover.

It's still enjoyable, but it's gonna take more than a couple of listens.
