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 Bayesian average rating of 84.8/100, a mean average of 83.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

To me, this is one of the five or ten greatest albums ever made, irrespective of genre. Production, performances, track sequencing, everything is essentially perfect. If you turn the volume up loud enough, the sheer power of tracks like "Souvlaki Space Station" and "When the Sun Hits" is practically transcendent.

It's so well done, I actually like the album less when they tack on that cover of "Some Velvet Morning" at the end as a bonus track.

A great dream pop for early Sunday morning moods and dreams about a better world.

I've only listened to a couple dream pop albums, but this is the only album that truly deserves this descriptor. It's more than dreamy, it's absolutely heavenly. This album gives me a sense of euphoria I haven't felt in a while.
