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 69.0/100, a mean average of 68.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

A low key effort and more artistic than usual for them, just a lovely listen

it seems that this albums would have been made by an average coverband but not by the manics!

This album reminds me a lot of Killing Joke's "Outside The Gate", because both albums took a large change in pace, and ended up alienating the fanbase, leading to it being called "their worst album". In my opinion, this is not the Manic Street Preachers' worst album, but it's definitely not their best.

Very underrated this one. Probably because it's a different style for the Manics, less guitar and a smooth production. Ignore the mixed reviews and give it a listen, especially if you enjoyed This is My Truth.

'Solitude sometimes is' is one of the best songs they recorded last decade.

One of the most overlooked and under appreciated albums of all time. In many ways its a very un-Manic album, with no long guitar solos, complex lyrics or political slogans, but instead is an emotion filled work of synth beauty. Best tracks :- 1985, Solitude Sometimes Is & Glasnost
