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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

After having killed myself by the end of Earthmover, I like to reincarnate as an elephant in the forest and listen to The Glow, Pt. 2.
this album makes me wanna kill myself.
Oh, what a mood this album puts me in. It feels like the music to Dante's Inferno. It feels like the music to the ending of Melancholia. It's the end of everything and, for me, a sordid reflection on what humanity has amounted to. It's a viewpoint seeing the worst in us from the grave and forces you to see the worst in yourself while listening... but, of course, in the most beautiful of ways.
Phenomenal dark album showing elements of many different genres: post-rock, noise, post-punk, and even emo vibes just to name a few.
Favorite tracks: Bloodhail, Waiting for Black Metal Records to Come in the Mail, Earthmover
No matter how hard they try, the head keeps bobbing above the water
Interesting music. I found it glum but not nearly as existentially harrowing as I expected based on reviews; "The Big Gloom" is not terribly gloomy. I experienced much of the middle as indistinctly repetitive and straightforward rather than as some terrible engulfing darkness.
The main strength of the album is that it's unique while evoking interesting influences. It gets credit for DIY qualities, for dealing with difficult subject matter, and for being much better than most music. The biggest drawback is that the discernible lyrics are at best ok and at worst detract from songs. The occasional emo inflections and some of the writing (most of "Bloodhail," "Hunter," "HFS: 40k,") come across as too maudlin. I like the album better when I skip tracks 4-11. Tracks 12 (from 0:46) and 13 (from 5:24) had the standout moments on the album.
I think that this type of grandiose morbidity would have appealed to me when I was much younger. If you're a young person and this album really resonates with you (especially if you're a male from the suburbs and don't have any "real" problems) please try going outside and exercising. It's not a panacea but it'll help and if you're tired enough you'll sleep better.
Well crafted album. It's amazing the quantity of styles they have in the mix, without placing quality in jeopardy. I can hear hints of Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Sigur Ros, Joy Division, Yo La Tengo and even My Bloody Valentine, adding up to a one-of-a-kind, very dark and droney atmosphere. It's very hard to pinpoint the genre of this record.
However, I'm not very fond of the emo style vocals but I guess it's a good fit, given how dark, intense, and depressive everything feels. Also, there are some very strange mixing choices in a lot of songs, with irregular volume levels in some songs. Those are my only two complaints.
Hadn't heard this album before spotting it so high on the 2008 chart - such a great discovery.
NIN meets Joy Division meets Swans. The result is one of the most intimate, angry, sad, and beautiful records I've ever heard. The only track I tend to skip is Who Would Leave Their Son Out In The Sun. The Big Gloom, There is No Food, HFS 40k, and I Don't Love are probably in my top 100 songs of all time. Earthmover is in the top 10.
Mother of God, Earthmover. No other song embodies how much I desperately want to die sometimes more than this song. It's exhausting to listen to.
I found nothing particularly interesting about this album. There are some fairly unique noises created, but they just kinda happen for a couple minutes and then stop. The vocals provide fairly little discernible lyrical content and don't add much to the atmosphere of the album. Also the drums are too prominent throughout, though it worked on some songs.
