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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.9/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

This is a record with a few stand out tracks and the rest sounds like a bit of a mess. It is their most inconsistent project I think they have ever released and that makes it very difficult to get into. Songs like Show Of Strength, Over The Wall and All My Colours are brilliant though with the latter being my personal favourite. This is mainly due to the drum work which stands out so well on that track and brings it so much life. The rest of the songs are either poor or filler and there is quite a lot you could remove off this record. The instrumentation is a bit bland and not very experimental on this release as well. I love McCulloch's vocal however. Overall, not one of their albums I frequently come back to but if I do it is only to hear those 3 or 4 amazing tracks.
Never did anything for me, and listening to it again has not changed my opinion. There are no good songs and everything sounds the same. Show of Strength, Over The Wall and A Promise sort of stand out. But the last one only from familiarity of it being on their greatest hits album.
A consistently very, very good record. All My Colours stands out to me as a gorgeous masterpiece.

Heaven Up Here > Ocean Rain
The best Bunnymen album, although I equally like Ocean Rain. The 3 first songs are really awesome, killer tracks. The drumming is really standing out.
After a week of repeated listening, I'd say you can try on this album in either of two ways. Either, you judge it by its stand out songs, which are far and few between: if you can listen half a dozen times and manage to hum more than 2 tunes afterwards, you're doing better than me.
Sadly, I could never get into this one. I love everything else the Bunnymen have put out, but Heaven Up Here just dosen't make the cut. That's not to say there aren't moments I love. All My Colours is one of my favourite Echo songs, and A Promise is fantastic. But as an album, I found it didn't come together as well as any other release by the band.
Not as good as Ocean Rain but getting there. Love the way it builds towards a climax towards the end of the 2nd side with a brace of brilliant songs.
My favourite Bunnymen album.
