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 78.0/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.2.

Great title, a lot of fantastic songs. The sound of YLT has really grown for this album, so many happy sounding songs and fun musical moments in the album.

Just in case anyone thought the old Yo La Tengo were gone, the band returns with this tour de force and, as promised, beats the ass of all those who ever questioned the band's longevity. I Am Not Afraid of You is a sprawling potpourri of an album that comes across as a spiritual successor to the band's I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One. Bookended by the monsters "Pass the Hatchet" and "Story of Yo La Tango" (yes, they're poking fun at a common misspelling), clocking in at 78 minutes there are unfortunately a few weaker tracks within. Possessing more than a fair share of some of the band's best material in a decade more than makes up for this, however.

"Beat Your Ass" picks up on "Inside-Out" and gives the swift kick in the ass the album title suggests. They're back with some upbeat guitar pop ready to take names and they want YOU to know it. That wry smirk of yours has Yo La Tengo written all over it.
