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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 77.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

There’s a lot to love here, but I am particularly fascinated by Moses Sumney’s gorgeous voice. From the first track onwards you feel that his voice alone can take you away to another place, that it doesn’t need to get more complicated. But as the album adds more and more elements over its runtime, you realise it can and does get even better.

A powerful, powerful listen by a young artist deserving of much more credit. The mixtures of soul, art rock, trip-hop and electronica create a record both entrancing and unsettling, one that truly climaxes with "Doomed", quite possibly one of the most tragically beautiful songs this reviewer has heard in a LONG time.
This is the perfect record for any dingus who says "good music doesn't exist anymore."

My AOTY, this one takes you further. It stretches the music, embellishes every little emotion, and leaves you heartbroken, like a great opera aria. The sparse instrumentation and electronic loops create a seductively dark atmosphere which traps you in its bosom. Yes, it's surprising that the album takes so much from the romantic period of music even as it rejects it through its lyrics, we are hearing music that is reinventing the wheel a bit, though certainly with influences from Radiohead, Joanna Newsom, Sufjan Stevens, and Frank Ocean. Only downside is it's only slightly longer than 30 minutes, meaning the album had some more room to grow and congeal.

This is a fantastic album. Quite a bit of Radiohead influence. I'll update this once I've listened more.

Best tracks: Don't Bother Calling, Quarrel, Indulge Me

For an album about lovelessness, Aromanticism is a strangely seductive one, occupying it's own space, uniquely at odds with the rest of the world. Romance is out, with many of the songs offering revealing yet affecting critiques on relationships. Make of it what you will, it's another world but it is a beautiful one. Step Inside.
