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 Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

Sonically one of the most interesting albums I've ever heard. So intricate and melodic with gorgeous and interesting lyrics accompanying it.
Bom uso do eletrônico!
This album picks up where the Lightning Seeds left off. In case anybody was looking for something from where the Lightning Seeds left off. I kind of was.
The production on this album is just pure brilliance. It is so smooth and slick that you glide from song to song and before you know it you have reached the end. Alongside this is the fact that there are some truly great songs on here, such as Such Great Heights, Nothing Better and others. There a several layers of sound as well making for a vibrant and fun experience every time you listen. As well as that the lyrics are pretty good and well worth looking into. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable record I can see myself coming back to many times in the future.
What a year that must have been for Ben Gibbard, fuck.
Definitely an 8, this album feels like an 8 as soon as the mid album starts to develop. Really fun, some iconic songs but not a legendary work, still glad I listened to it, different styles are always fun to listen to.
This is album kind of blew me away upon first listen, really good production as well.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
An album that is fairly light on the lyrics, with some cliches, it does still turn out to be a pretty good album for the one album band.
Favorite Track: Such Great Heights
This album can sound a little too simple (almost 8-bit) in places but becomes much more interesting when the layers of sound kick in. Such Great Heights and Sleeping In the top tracks for me. Quite different to most of the electronic/synth pop I own.
