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 69.7/100, a mean average of 69.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.7.

Foot of the Mountain is in the running for my favourite A-ha album of the 2000s, the only one that rivals it at all being the brilliant 'Analogue'.

This little gem of an album starts off with 'Bandstand' which is one of the weaker tracks, but still good nonetheless. Then we get the catchy ballad 'Riding the Crest' followed by 'What There is', again one of the less noteworthy tracks.

Then the album really kicks into gear with the brilliant title track which is one of their best pop singles since the early days. After which we have another really good track titled 'Real Meaning' and continue this run of quality with 'Shadowside', which is one of the best on the album.

Then we have a bit of a drop-off with 'Nothing is Keeping You Here', which is about as good as 'What There is' and 'The Bandstand'. After this we get a sudden jolt back into masterful territory with the best track on the album 'Mother Nature goes to Heaven', a beautiful, lush piece with lyrics as good as it's instrumentation. After this we get 'Sunny Mystery' which is nice followed by 'Start the Simulator', a great way to close the album.

Overall, this album feels like an A-ha album through and through. It's fun, catchy and there are enough great songs to keep you coming back for more. Highly recommend it.
