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 8% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

A really impressive release from Lucy , lyrically is where this album really shines , pay close attention and you'll be richly rewarded

Second to last track "Pillar Of Truth" is truly epic and album standout track for mine

Lucy Dacus has the honour of being the only artist to appear twice in my 2018 Best Album List - first as a 3rd of Boygenius and now with her individual release 'Historian'

I hate myself for not wanting to listen to this sooner. I think this is absolutely fantastic. "Night Shift" is probably one of this year's bests and the album cover is simply amazing.

A terrific singer-songwriter album. It's pretty dark and introspective and makes an excellent headphones or solitary listen in the dark, with coffee and/or alcohol. Night Shift is one of the best songs I've heard this year.

As someone who was pretty cold on No Burden, this is a nice surprise. Polished, yes, but still beautifully written and biting.
