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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 77.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

I love a challenging album experience and this one fits the bill perfectly - dense , tense and long asking a commitment from the listener and then rewarding as it gets better and better the more one listens to it

Could’ve tell you if this album is better nor worse than ‘Dear Science’ but I can tell you this album is bloody awesome and sits on the cusp of my All-time top 100 albums

Good music. But not as memorable as Dear Science. Maybe I need to give it another listen.

This album just sucks you in. I was blown away listening to this after Dear Science and can't honestly tell you which one I like better (although I usually lean Dear Science). This is still excellence at the highest power.

Very few albums covers fit their album as good as this one. That bird's nest is what this album sounds like: a tangled, gnarled mess of sounds that somehow fits perfectly together. The sound is trying very hard to drive you away - every bass not on I Was a Lover pushes you further out of the rhythm, but if you stick around the results are great. Wolf Like Me is obviously the highlight, but the rest of the songs flesh out a great concept.

I cant get over this album, it is definitely my favorite record of theirs. I end up listening to this way more often they I do Dear Science. There is just some kind of feeling this album has that I can not get over.
Wolf Like Me got me hooked but Province and Tonight kept me

This band is a collection of very good players who really play hit and miss with accessibility. There are three or four songs on this that I like and only one I love (Wolf Like Me) and yet I must pull this out every once in a while because those good songs really are quite unique.

Not as good as Dear Science, but a really good album in its own right.
