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 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.1.

Not as good as, lost souls, or, the last broadcast, but still a good album. It's slightly darker and more intimate than the first two records. Good but not great.

My first exposure to Doves was this album. I had heard about The Last Broadcast, but my local record store only had this one in stock. The experience was pretty predictable. Mind-blown. Totally floored. Went online and ordered their discography. I'm always impressed by how many layers they can cake on even as a three-piece.

Doves' third offering that shows they have as much substance as Coldplay or Keane; if not more. 'The Storm' is one track that will forever stay with me and is in my top five favourite songs.
