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 has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.1.

Lacks some of the energy and texture of Engravings, but for pure beguiling, dreamy sonic beauty few recent releases can match this. While not the most, challenging albums of it's kind, it's certainly among the most engaging and immediately beguiling, though I wonder how well it will hold up on multiple listens.

It's very accomplished, and one of the better albums I've heard this year... Still lacking something I can't quite out my finger on though.

Serious AOTY contender for me. Organic electronic albums usually don't sit well with me (the only exceptions being Forest Sword's previous effort and Virgins by Tim Hecker), but this album kept me engaged for my entire listen. It's rich, it's cinematic, it's thrilling- it truthfully raised my standard for this type of electronic music. Highly recommended.

This dude is a master of his art.
