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 73.5/100, a mean average of 72.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

A classic album in the style of David Bowie and Roxy Music. The vocals are wonderfully over the top and the songs bring on air of theatricality which is a perfect fit for the style of the songs. Sulk, is a great album which should be more widely known.

I love this album, but Fourth Drawer Down is even better in my opinion. Perhaps Dundee's best ever band.

A spiritual cousin of MBV's Loveless, Sulk was a great mix of the Associates skewed pop and of studio experimentation.

'Sulk' is a masterpiece - a brilliant and often overlooked album. Billy McKenzie has the most amazing voice that sweeps and soars through every track on this album.
