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 79.2/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

It seriously feels like the people that made The Devil And God had grown up some more and are no catching up with their fans

Not as strong as their earlier albums but very enjoyable still.

Best tracks other than the top rated are, "There Could Never Be Heaven", "137", and "451"

Easily their best since TDaGaRIM. It's got all the emotion of that record, but with a more haunting sound. This is a dark album, and certainly one of my favourite emo releases in a long time.

Gosh. I liked this album and a lot of Brand New songs I used to listen to in High School. It's too bad knowing that the lead singer was doing bad stuff w/ underage girls. IIRC the same allegations didn't stop Bowie from taking a bunch of high spots for album of the year. It certainly is disappointing and difficult to separate the music from the musicians who are flawed humans.
