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 72.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

Very good indie rock album. Best 10 songs average is 92,0/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. I like this sound and the album is rich in variety. Notable are the well-fitting electronic instruments and samples here and there. Best songs are the first three: "Everyday I love...", "I predict a riot" and "Modern way" all 95/100. Closely followed by "You can have it all", "Oh my god", "Born to be a dancer" and "Caroline, yes" all 90/100. There is no smash hit, but very good songs from beginning to the end, wow!!

For their debut, it is good, but doesn't really hold up to the standards of nostalgia for me.

is such a highlight.

This was an okay debut album. A few solid tracks, but mostly just average at best.
