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 73.9/100, a mean average of 73.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

I originally had this album on tape and have recently bought it on brand new vinyl, the sound production is excellent. This album sits between synth pop and rock which I am sure confuses many listeners. Ultravox were one of the more clever synth based eighties bands using real drums or electric pads rather than a TR808. I particularly like 'Passing Strangers', 'Mr X', 'sleepwalk' and 'Vienna' but don't dislike any of the tracks. I must admit, until I saw Midge Ure, live, in an acoustic concert just a few years ago, I hadn't realised what an excellent guitarist he is.
