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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.9/100, a mean average of 74.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

mediocre to average power pop. Nothing special.

Well written/ well structured songs.
This album has a feel-good sound.
Fuzzy, playful reverberation coated.
Melodies rise to the surface of this crisp, dreamy noise. Sunny melodies and jangly guitar tones with swooning thin airy, vocals spawn a hazy 70's vibe. A straightforward, glam tinged pop/rock warmth.

Still listening to this as I found it on a list of best of 2011. The first couple of tracks are very typically indie but there's a tempo to them that makes it likable. I might rerate this.

Some big star -influenced type of indie rock/pop. It's faintly shoegazy, but mostly some jangly indie pop with some warm studio atmospherics.

Not a bad album. Got a nice guitar sound to it. Not much to distinguish between tracks, nothing particular of putting. Could appeal to fans of the lo- fi sound. Imagine Pt 3 was the song which I enjoyed the most.

Still New... sounds like track 2 off the Fleet Foxes album.
