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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.3.

This album has some nice melodies and is quite digestible, but Conor's voice is not for me.

Ranked 5th best Album in 2005 I felt compelled to check it out . The opening track “At The Bottom Of Everything “ is awesome & I highly recommend you listen to this song even if you don’t listen to the rest of the album. Also the closing track “ Road To Joy” (which contains the I’m Wide Awake, Its Morning line) is similarly awesome . However the 8 songs between tracks 1 and 10 were Meh kinda ok at best. Overall I’m glad I visited this album and can see the appeal

I remember the first time listening to this album and the first song made an impression on me as the story in the beginning was indeed intriguing. The lyrics were decent, but also felt a little contrived, even if lively and good.

Kinda mediocre album for me, even if it is noticeably better than most average albums.

A lovely balance of poetic lyrics with pretty music. Much better than some of the dull sparse singer-songwriter stuff that's been en vogue of late.

I love the shadow singing of Harris with the shakey voice of Oberst on 3 of the tracks. But throughout, some of the best lyrics of the last 20 years. Maintains the high standard throughout more than any other of Oberst's albums.

The wordsmith's legacy continues. This album strings top-notch heart-wrenching ballads one after another. You will want a hug when its over.
