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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Why BEA has chosen this to be a favorite is extremely random to me. I think bands like Ride and Lush make just as enjoyable shoegaze, but this is certainly not bad.

This is shoegaze in its purest form and concept. Does it make for a great album?
No, but certainly an enjoyable one!

I really like the album, but I'm much more into their more experimental stuff, like the 5 EP and the In Mind remixes.

This album is the definition of beauty... just incredible. I can't explain that with words, you must listen it and find out why. 'When the sun hits' probably one of the most beautiful songs i have ever listened.

I can't express how much I love this record and I'm so glad it's finally getting the recognition it deserves.
