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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.9/100, a mean average of 78.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.4.

Of course everybody refers to their first album as their best but in my opinion this album is nearly as good; not only because it has their best track (Ever Fallen In Love) but also because all the other ones are top Buzzcocks as well (with Operators Manual as the second best).

Not a patch on Another Music in a Different Kitchen, only tracks 2 and 4 stand out.

Except for Real World and sixteen Again, not a really memorable album... and the instrumental tracks are too long.

Honestly failed to hold my attention. Overlong. The first few tracks are good. But I was bored by the end. Still, the melodies are really nice. And they play very well together.

Good but quality dips halfway thru in particular Sixteen Again, Walking Distance, & Love Is Lies.
