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 13% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.3/100, a mean average of 74.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Stripped down and darn good‘Mental Illness’ remains Aimee Mann’s most recent album some 3 years post as I write this in 2020

Origin of opening track “Goose Snowcone”: whilst touring in Ireland a friend sent Aimee a photo of her pet cat GOOSE who just so happened to be wearing one of those plastic cone devices around its neck . It reminded Aimee of home and a snow cone, she meant to change the Snow Cone lyric but couldn’t think of an alternative so it remained. The song is ultimately about missing home. Oh and if you check out the video to this track said cat not only appears but makes a starring role

I've come to expect great tunes from Aimee Mann but not normally so many on the same album. This is a very pretty and satisfying album. Great for fans of good old-fashioned songwriting.

Aimee Manns latest album, "Mental Illness" is her hitherto most subdued; almost unplugged acoustic. There is a marked change compared to its predecessor "Charmer" from 2012 and in particular in relation to the album released as "The Both" with Ted Leo, which could be labelled as power-pop ala Foo Fighters or The Cardigans.
As always Aimee Manns excels with great songs; melodic with insightful lyrics, which usually have high durability.
Two "singles" were pre-released; "Snow Goose Cone" and "Patient Zero". Logically these two belong among the most immediately catchy and will probably be favorites among many listeners. Besides these two I will also highlight the almost bare and piano accompanied "Poor Judge", which rounds the album off. Also outstanding is "Simple Fix", which is one of the few tracks featurings drums; would ne a nice choice for a third single.
Great to notice that the album has been very positively received, and that it has already been hailed as her best since the classic "Bachelor No. 2 "
