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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

In 1993, Dave Simpson from Melody Maker wrote about Slowdive's album "Souvlaki": "„This record is a soulless void. I would rather drown choking in a bath full of porridge than ever listen to it again."

They come a long way since then. Nowadays they make pop-dream-rock which seems to be more difficult and I'm glad they changed they direction from shoegaze to such beautiful songs they are making now.

Of course "No longer making time" is a timeless great piece of music. But also the rest of the album is very dreamy-creamy and sounds fantastic.

I am new into dream pop and into Slowdive and this album makes me want to keep on discovering this band and genre.

I do love me a bit of Dream Pop and 22 years since their last release 1995's 'Pygmalion' , Slowdives 'Slowdive' is rather excellent from top to bottom. 2017 surprise of the year for sure

The 2 standout tracks for me were "Sugar for the Pill" and closer "Falling Ashes"

Ok this is a good album but to suggest its better than 'Loveless' is ridiculous , come on guys get a grip
