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 70.0/100, a mean average of 68.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.9.

Saw Simple Minds tour this at Plymouth Pavillions a few years ago. A brilliant album imo, lots of synth textures and great to see Mel Gaynor back in the drum stool using some electric drums again. Big Music, Blood Diamonds and Honest Town are excellent. Best album since New Gold Dream I reckon.
And to follow up my original comment above, the vinyl version has just been delivered to my door (6/6/18) and this is one of the best albums I have bought on vinyl in a long time, has a real punch that you don't get with the CD. It should be in the top five in the Simple Minds chart listings imo!
