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 16% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 74.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

I believe this was their best album with Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) one of the greatest songs ever written. Love is A Stranger, I've Got An Angel, Jennifer and This is the House are also great tracks. The group was at the cutting edge with their synth sound, lyrics and Annie's powerful voice.

There's more to this than just the singles people recognise. Good synth album before the group went all mainstream. I like this more simple sound, it suits Annie's voice. Another purchase on vinyl for next to nothing 2nd hand.

Nice songs, nice voice.

My preference goes to "love is a stranger" & "sweet dreams".

This record is when Eurythmics began straddling the line between experimentation and commerciality, and they did it very well for a while. The title track is ethereal and wonderful, and "The Walk" and "I Could Give You (A Mirror)" are standouts as well.

Ultimately this is an album carried by its handful of best tracks. Regardless Dave Stewart's icy electronics marry so well to Annie's big, soulful voice. The title track is new wave music perfected.
