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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Super catchy stuff, but it feels like something is missing, can't quite put my finger on it.

A fantastic and accessible album that was understandably their "big hit". No bad tracks, but Stadium Love could be stronger. Gimme Sympathy, Satellite Mind, and Gold Guns Girls are the standouts and I would recommend them to anyone with even a passing interest in indie rock or indie pop

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

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.
