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 2% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

From JulianR 02/14/2018 05:46
I was expecting something quite different, but that's usually true I suppose. Still, this album is a lot closer to ambient and minimalist than it is to sludge metal and the likes, which is what I thought Boris was. I guess thats what you get when you start to explore a diverse artist's discography. Anyway, the album itself is mediocre. The minimalism of parts ii and iv can be interesting in an abstract way, but nothing really comes of it. It's not in the post-rock vein on building on a motif, but it more just meanders from one thing to the next. Still, I could definitely see some people appreciating it

The buildup is honestly the best part of this album; the eventual rollicking doom epic isn't intense enough to get proper catharsis from and to describe the last 20 minutes or so as "taxing" would be a tremendous understatement-an entire third of the album, reserved for Krautrock-style noodling! Interesting and ambitious, but not one of Boris' finer albums.
