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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.0/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

Asentados ya como una de las bandas intocables del Siglo XXI, Mastodon nos trae en su séptimo disco una serie de canciones que discurren por la senda marcada por 'The hunter' y 'Once more around the sun', con temas pegadizos en los que predomina el Sludge y con reminiscencias a sus años dorados dentro del Progresivo. Como era lógico, la voz del batería Brann Dailor cobra cada vez un protagonismo mayor, con esas voces limpias que tan bien entran. Tener tres voces en el grupo es un extra, pues aportan una serie de matices a lo largo de los temas que pocas bandas pueden llegar a soñar. Si incluso la sencilla y comercial "Show yourself" ha conseguido callar a los más críticos, imaginad lo que pueden hacer auténticas piezas de orfebrería como "Steambreather" o "Jaguar God". Llevan ya siete discos, con sus altos y sus bajos, pero en un estado de forma asombroso.

Very consistent, I don't think there's a bad track here. Among their top 3 or 4, not sure is it better than Blood Mountain

As has been well-documented, the band was hit on multiple fronts with family illness and death and that clearly produced a fertile creative period. It's dark and heavy while also being proggy. What more could you want from a Mastodon album? I think this is their best work since Crack the Skye.

One of my least favorite Mastodon albums, just sad that "Show Yourself" and some throwbacks really drags down the whole thing. This is the most progressive I feel Mastodon have sounded yet in their new sound but I just don't feel any bite. There still is quality here, so it's still a good record, just more disappointment.
