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 72.5/100, a mean average of 72.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

Mar20. Holy shit! This sounds great. The husky vocals remind me of someone else, but I can't pick right now (maybe the singer of Trash Boat?). If you like bands like The Menzingers and Penske File, then check this out. I had only listened to a couple of songs a few times before this full album play through.
'Nuevo' is a slow introduction that leads into the cool 'Sequels, Remakes & Adaptations'. 'Bellyache' is brilliant. 'Buffalo, Buffalo' has some cool moments, with stops and starts and other standard punk moments and then a backing guitar that is very Menzingers-like. 'The Boy Considers His Haircut' has a bit of a The Clash rhythm to it. So does 'El Nino'…. The lyrics to this one are some fun too. This song could become a favourite.
Wow, this does not let up. It might be a bit 'samey' for some, but this is the stuff I love. It does finish with a slow acoustic number which is okay, but I love the rest of this. I'm starting with a decent score, but feel this could become a 5/5 with more listens.
May21. I've spent a lot of time with this and it helped get me through COVID lockdowns. A bloody emotional album. I keep finding favourites on here. 'Bellyache' and 'Buffalo, Buffalo' have both wormed their way into top quarter of my 2018 H100. Almost every song is in the list. Yes, it is time to bump this up, but I amnot quite at a 5 yet. 4.5/5
