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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.3/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

I’d recommend people getting into the band to start here. They finally deliver some very good songs such as Happy House, Hybrid, Christine which is the best track & Red Light and the whole album is worth a listen.

Kaleidoscope is a dizzying journey through a surrealistic environment. Parts feel a little robotic but it is still fantastically written.

This their 3rd album was the weakest up to that point however tracks like Christine, Happy House, Skin & Clockface prove that it has stood the test of time. Not their best but not bad.

A mature and experimental progression. Probably my 4th favorite from Siouxsie and the Banshees (Juju and The Scream tying in first place, and Join Hands being third).
