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 72.8/100, a mean average of 72.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.2.

Likely their biggest, most relevant & best statement of an album since reuniting at the beginning of this decade. Sure, it’s not classic Superchunk but it’s pretty damn close. And honestly they present something new here, that’s vital and separates this from the rest of the work. The opener is heart pounding but “Erasure” with Waxahatchee & the equally excellent, Stephin Merrit is the standout for me. In short, another slice of excellence from some real indie rock veterans.

Score: 8.2/10
