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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.1/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Too late to fall in love with this now, I'm afraid. Back in the day they would've been a great gateway band to The Slits and some cool math rock. Still, the songs sound fresh and convey genuine feeling. And despite the mathy arrangements the grooves are pretty agreeable - they clearly prefer the sweeter stuff from the dissonant bands they draw from (SY's Schizophrenia came to mind more than once).
