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 85.3/100, a mean average of 84.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

A solid album with some truly brilliant highlights but it lacks the consistency to be right at the top. To start with the negatives, there is some filler on here that I would arguably skip out such as War On War and I'm The Man Who Loves You. Neither song feels significant or as infectious as the ones around them. This does also create a bloated listen that can drag on quite a bit. Despite this, when the music is good on here it is fantastic. The highlights for me are when they slow it down and allow the song to progress a little more. The best showcases of this is on Poor Places and I Am Trying To Break Your Heart. Both are extremely rewarding to listen to and they always make me want more Wilco content similar to this. The catchier songs are also great with Kamera and Heavy Metal Drummer being on repeat for days after I first listened to this album alongside the sensational Jesus, Etc. If they could maintain this quality this album would be right near the top of my ranking. Overall, I always enjoy this album whenever I listen to it with the slower side contrasting well with the more upbeat accessible songs but the few filler tracks drag the rating down for me.

As American indie records go it doesn't get much better than this, in fact it is only matched by their own previous effort Summerteeth. The production is absolutely fantastic and only makes the brilliant song-writing shine even more. The album is riddled with highlights and moments of unbridled, raw and honest joy.
Please tell me why this album ranks so high. There must be a reason for that. 80 points is sufficient. Good but bo mind-blowingly great.
Excellent indie rock album. My highlights are War On War, Pot Kettle Black and I'm Trying to Break Your Heart. Reservations is the weak song on the album for me - 7 minutes of meh.
I’m not the biggest fan of experimental music, but this record is far more melodic and musical than other examples. I really liked the simplicity of Heavy Metal Drummer and I *almost* got into some of the more conceptual stuff.
Not sure I’ll ever be a huge fan of this record, but I liked it more than I expected to.
This is like the Donnie Darko of albums: a cult classic that everyone should experience at least once.
Me parece un disco normal y corriente.
