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 Bayesian average rating of 72.6/100, a mean average of 72.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

"Don't Talk To Me About Love" is a terrific pop confection. My introduction to the band, however atypical of most of the group's previous output.

Altered Images go sophisticated. Three albums, three years and truth be told, as much as I loved them, each album was slightly inferior to the previous one so I'm kinda glad it stopped here.

Mind you if you do like them then Clare Grogan recorded two brand new tracks for an Altered Images compilation album, and they are as good as anything they did - Las Vegas Lullaby and Small Without Me.
