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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.3.

Some version comes with additional tracks available as a download. They include "new paths to helicon". Why this is not on the album proper is anyone's guess. Why is it not just a double album? Anyways, said track is one of the great live experiences and easily up there with "Mogwai fear Satan". Sound is fantastic, play loud. Mogwai are a band to experience live. This is the place to start any relationship with the band.
