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 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.6.

This album wraps itself around you, and surrounds you with warm, but fearsome melancholy.

The National delivers again a special experience with a small change in their sound. However, I personally like Carin at the Liquor Store the most, but it's more similar to older work.

I've never been enamoured by The National, but this is a more nuanced record. Quieter and more introspective. Really not a bad album at all.

As one of the biggest National fans out there, I was incredibly disappointing upon release. The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness is one of their best songs and when that single was released, I was ecstatic. Then, as each single was released after that, I became less and less excited. The album took a while to grow on me. Turtleneck is actually one of my least favorite songs I've ever listened to. It does nothing for me. All in all, it took a while for me to like this album. It's nowhere near their best - but certainly a good listen.

This album made me appreciate even more how powerful & moving their lyrics are. Another gem from The National.

The National does it once more with another great album. Not as good as Higher Violet or Trouble Will Find me but one of 2017s best none the less. Looking forward to seeing how this album is played live, I’m predicting superbly
