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 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

Got to love an album that starts off with a line like "There is no castration fear"

Great album, although admittedly not all 18 tracks are as great as "We Dance"

There's a lot of filler on this album, but the songs that are good are some of the best songs pavement recorded. Rattled by the Rush, Grounded, At&t, Kennel District are some of the best songs ever in my opinion. Grave Architecture, Black Out, Father to a Sister of a Thought and more are also pretty good. But then you also have songs like Expedition and Serpentine Pad that bring it down a little. Still a very good album though, would recommend.

Ok album. Best 10 songs average is 80,2/100 and the album can get ok 80/100. Bit too experimantal for me. Best song is "Father To A Sister Of Thought" good 85/100. All other songs ok to below-average.

Instant classic.

Pavement's peak in a non-rigid, chaotic sea of great LPs.

Wowee zowee, is Pavement's masterpiece. It's an epic record, Stephen Malkmus' white album. Great songs here; rattled by the rush, serpentine pad, and, best friend's arm, are just three of the many wonderful songs on this LP. Slanted and enchanted, is probably most people's choice as best Pavement record, but for me, it's this one. Casual genius.
