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 5% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

This is more accessible and as a result more popular. Metric does party music extremely well. A very fun and enjoyable album.

This album is just excellent, straight indie pop with several brilliant songs!

Every track is good/great, but as a whole, it works best as background music.

Fancy sort of mess. Their next album was better. Could try this again I suppose.

This is a poppy breakthrough album that goes more for appealing than punky. So this is their sellout, then.... so what. Emily Haines deserves to be known... and to set more hearts beating like a hammer, indeed.

On paper, this should be great. Emily Haines is a charismatic lead singer with sex appeal and a sweet voice. The band plays great licks and sounds and has solid musicianship. However, in practice, it falls flat. The lyrics are cliche at best, insipid at worst, and the songs lack any kind of memorable structure or melody. Gimme Sympathy is the closest to success. Otherwise, avoid.

Help I'm Alive is brilliant, as is this whole album.
