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 10% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.8.

I enjoyed this one more than the rest of their work. This is also, to me, their weirdest and most experimental record. I wonder if there's a connection.

The best FF album in my opinion (heard GB, BB, and most of EP so far). Benton Harbor Blues hits close to home...

The one complaint I would have is that the last three tracks are a bit unnecessary.. Not bad, but Benton Harbor Blues would be an excellent closer, + the two reprises just seem worse than the original songs..

Cool stuff. "Benton Harbor Blues" & "Waiting to Know You" are two of my favorite tracks from the past decade. This album is never boring & flows better than their other efforts. Check it out.
