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 81.8/100, a mean average of 80.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

A great album with so much to explore. Every track perfectly fits the tone and style of the record and adds to the environment that the artist is creating. It truly is an experience from start to finish. It can feel a little slow at times and some song do seem to drag a little. Overall, an intriguing and brilliant album to listen too.

Like Aphex Twin, unsettling and even scary at times. They are truly the equivalent of the punk movement in electronic music (musically, not culturally).

I've recently become a huge IDM fan, in the past year or so I took it on myself to consume every LP by IDM legends aphex twin, autechre & boards of canada, unearthing so many great records from these sonic geniuses, and I have to say this is the finest record out of them all. This is because BoC use dreamy, sometimes trippy, textures to create a sense of otherworldliness **and yet** "Music has the Right to Children" is very much rooted in the real world. With short snatches of child-like wonder and laughter seamlessly blending in with the excellent production, one feels an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Boards of Canada have captured not our childhood, but the scattershot memories of our childhood, all the bits and pieces we can remember stitched together in a glorious fashion. A wondrous, evocative piece of art.
