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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

I think this is Blur's best album, or at least the most consistent one. 8.5/10.

A tidy album from Blur but I don't think it has enough top-shelf songs to nudge it into the 80+ ratings for mine. It is consistent though, and I agree that many of the songs are very enjoyable but it hasn't got the enduring classics on it.

One of the few albums that make a comeback worthwhile. It has elements from every era of Blur's career.
Highlights: Lonesome Street, Terracotta Heart, Spaceman.
