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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.8/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Still holds up as raucous fun and prescient rebellion.
3th track is a masterpiece 🤘🏻😎
A solid punk album that demonstrates how good the Clash are and is a great starter album for anyone looking to get into punk. It is 35 minutes of classic punk with a slight intermission for the slower, but excellent, Police & Thieves. You really can't go wrong with this record and it is tough to not fall in love with its rawness and also its energy. It was the first Clash record that I connected with and while it may not be their best it is definitely still a great record and has some Clash classics on here. Overall, this is a must listen album full of great music and it is thoroughly enjoyable.
One of the best early classic Punk-albums, and only surpassed by Sex Pistols imo. Police and thieves could easily fit onto London Calling, and i like Deny/White Riot as well. London Calling, Combat Rock and Maybe Sandinista are better albums for me, but this is a great beginning
First album by The Clash is great for a debut, they represent here more politically charged punk rock than Ramones. This project is mostly consistent, but two stinkers are Cheat and Protex Blue. Police & Thieves show what was yet to come.

Never will the music be the same and as disturbing to the general adult audiences after this.
Classic and groundbreaking album...
