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 Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

Pixies come out of the gate strong with Come On Pilgrim, 20 minutes of in-your-face hardcore punk infused alt rock. Nothing mind blowing, but more than satisfying enough.

My favourite Pixies release, Doolittle is a very close second. Their early, a bit sloppy but undeniably brilliant songwriting was always close to my heart. Surfer Rosa has some weaker tracks while this is Pixies turned up to 11 all the way through, without a skippable note or lyric. And Caribou is the front-runner for the best Pixies song.

Solid EP. They would do much better in their following 2 albums though.

Hard for me to separate this from Surfer Rosa, as I grew up on the combined disc. But given the high esteem we all have for Surfer Rosa, that's just a testament to how similarly good this material is.

Filled with incest, screaming, and sexual frustration. Fun for the whole family.

Very strong and fresh debut, but I think Pixies have something more in the following years

This EP is like a shorter "Surfer Rosa". Surprisingly good.

This is another level of music, no EP can be this perfect. EVERY song is perfect, and when they released the Surfer Rosa & Come ON Pilgrim compilation, it was surprising to say that every track was perfect. Seems like the Pixies had a bright past that apparently disappeared in Bossanova. Sorry for my bad english.
