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 has a Bayesian average rating of 69.1/100, a mean average of 68.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

So I've given it a bit more time and attention. The highs became really high and the lows turned out to be growers/slow burners I wasn't in the mood for. Fantastic, even if a bit less energetic.

I've listened to this album many times and it's all a bit ordinary for my liking . Pleasant enough, neat enough, competent sure but not much else .Trust The Sun goes ok as does Montparnasse. But after 52 minutes Little Fictions wears out its welcome with a bunch of mostly forgettable tracks ?I'm surprised it's ranked 33rd best album in 2017 , clearly there are plenty of punters out there who disagree with my assessment

As someone who loves Elbow, and who show's up for pretty much anything they do, I can't complain one bit. This is maybe my favorite record of theirs since The Seldom Seen Kid. In a few listens, it might be up there with Asleep in the Back. Can't recommend enough.

3rd listen... album is a bit Jekyll and Hyde for me. One song I really dig and then the next song is typical high quality stuff from Elbow, but a bit boring. Still overall pretty good.

A very good album, not a great album, but I prefer it to their last album Take Off and Landing of Everything. I'd rather the band get a bit more experimental they seemed to be falling into a pattern. I prefer their earlier albums.

This album grows on me every time I listen to it. Right now third best Elbow album on my list (only "Seldom seen kid" and "Leaders of the free world" higher), and I wonder where it will go in the future.

I haven't heard their previous stuff, so I dint really have anything to compare this to; And I loved this album. The title track is excellent.
