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 85.9/100, a mean average of 84.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

One of my favorite albums. Apocalyptic and turbulent. Sometimes hopeful?

Musically, it’s really good. These guys are talented. The down side, for me, is that it’s tough to lock in on these songs. My brain wanders a bit too easily, I guess.

Some of the more "uplifting" moments feel like the background music to those corny motivational videos you'd likely see on Facebook (i.e. Dhar Mann). But then you get the darker moments and then I realized that this is the stark contrast of day to day life, sometimes it feels awful, sometimes it feels great. Brutally honest and brilliant.

The fact that an instrumental album that runs for nearly 90 minutes sits within the BEA Overall top 90 says it all how special this album is

Essential listening for all true music aficionados

This album truly takes you on a journey from the slower and more delicate sections to the louder and chaotic sections. Both are just as elegant as each other and really make the album a cohesive record. Storm, Sleep and Like Antennas To Heaven are near perfect post rock songs that are all around 20 minutes of pure bliss. The mastery of the instruments on display is mesmerising and truly stuns you right from the opening of Storm. Static on the other hand, doesn't live up to the same levels in my opinion. Whilst the song is still amazing, it just doesn't create that same atmosphere that the other 3 do so well. That is the only thing keeping me from giving the album a perfect score.

Probably the first time I cried to an instrumental. One piano note can give away so much emotions than a complex classical composition. Post-rock is a medicine for my soul.

I must say I get a bit tired with postrock with the long noodling because they inevitably reach their chaotic but cathartic ending. But this album by this band is a bit different. Although it also has only four tracks which each take about 20 minutes, already that first track offers a variety of different segments which are all very interesting. The same can't be said for the other tracks: ex the second one has a fairly long and boring beginning ending with an interesting middle section and the last one is nearly completely uninteresting. But somehow this album presents some kind of unity although the last track should maybe have been deleted to present a more concise album.
