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 73.6/100, a mean average of 73.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.1.

The lyrics are pretty much the best Matt Good's ever done; it's tough not to be affected when you know the context of his life at this time (failed relationship, mental illness, addiction & suicide attempt). However, what keeps this from being a classic is the fact that the music is the same as the previous few Matt Good releases. It's good, but this could have been amazing.

Much-maligned, under-appreciated, contentious, yet loved by many, Matthew Good, one of many proverbial tortured geniuses in rock history, hit new heights with this record. It combines raw emotion with well-placed social commentary. A bad divorce, bipolar disorder, an unnecessary war and cancer in the family of a close friend all combined to inspire a wide variety of epic songs. I know I'm in a very, very small minority (even among his fans) when I say this but this is the finest moment in the career of a very talented singer songwriter. I absolutely stand by my assertion that this is one of the best music albums ever. I wish more people were on board with me that track-for-track this is an extremely solid album punctuated often by absolute brilliance....
Years later, I still think this is a work of genius. For all the genius of Black Helicopter, Born Losers and I'm A Window, etc., the real standouts are the understated songwriting, beautiful singing expansions on Odette, Single Spark Explosion and 99%. Such a great album!
