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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.7/100, a mean average of 70.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.3.

Smooth and mellow. Its ambient atmosphere reminds me a lot of their sublime 'And then nothing turned itself inside-out' (2000), but there isn't really a Cherry Chapstick on here to break up the mood. It's a beautifully sustained, hour-plus meditation. They still haven't made a bad album.

Long time YLT fan. Listened a couple of times so far and I enjoy it. I just wanted to comment that every time Dream Dream Away comes on, it sounds like they were starting to cover a slow version of Tom Petty's Free Fallin', got to the first couple of bars... then 'act' like they forget how it goes, and keep repeating...
she's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis
she's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis
she's a good girl, well you get the picture. Then there is some drone in the middle, then they try playing Petty again, but it just ain't happening.
Doesn't sound like a full track to me, but I smile and think this everytime it plays this track. Shortwave/Above The Sound follow this and these tracks are brilliant.

Such a lovely album. The ambient tracks in the middle really help to secure the vibe. 20 years in and Yo La Tengo still haven't lost it.
