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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.2/100, a mean average of 82.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

One of my favorite albums of the decade. It's so trippy electronic mix with psychedelic pop and the melody feels right with it. No filler, all killer.

this album broke me in as a lip's fan. I don't care if fight test rips off cat stevens. I really can relate to the struggle of when to fight and when to walk away, and depending on the circumstances, it really is a measure of how strong of a person you are. I think it's a universal struggle and Coyne captures it so well in that song. He can be a great songwriter when he wants to be.

Unpopular opinion, but I think part 2 of the title track is every bit as good as part 1

Superb album, arguably the climax of their career along with The Soft Bulletin. Opener and title track are some of the finest tracks ever recorded by the band, accidental plagiarism aside.
