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 73.5/100, a mean average of 73.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.7.

Nice album, maybe a little more variation missing.

Some nice indie tunes here, nothing memorable with the great exception of "Dylan Thomas" which is one of my favourite songs of 2019

First great Conor album in 15 years. Hope for those hitting 40? Or find spirit in the youth?

Decidedly, Phoebe Bridgers is on fire right now. After a first solo album in 2017 named "Stranger In The Alps", the Californian re-offended with supertrio boygenius the following year with a first EP, now she presents her new side-project with Conor Oberst named "Better Oblivion Community Center ". Yes, it's really the duet that nobody expected a week ago. "Better Oblivion Community Center" is obviously not attached to a single style. With the musical past of Conor Oberst, the duet manages to diversify itself with the electronic accents of "Exception To The Rule" or the noise-rock sounds of "Big Black Heart". The album is unexpected and enjoyable but there are some pretty forgettable moments, taking over the clichés of indie folk. With "Better Oblivion Community Center", Conor Oberst has been offering one of its best performances for a long time, thanks to the infallible charisma of Phoebe Bridgers.

6/10

Best track: "Dylan Thomas"

Better Oblivion Community Center is Connor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers

Following her stunning 2017 solo album 'Stranger In The Alps' and her superb collaboration with 2018's Boygenius , Bridgers does it again in 2019 with this excellent album

A wonderful bunch of tracks from 2 artists at the top of their game

Very classy stuff

I didn't connect with this right away - it was absolutely a grower for me, though. Standout tracks: Forest Lawn, Big Black Heart, Chesapeake.

Starts off well but becomes forgettable fairly quickly. It all sounds very earnest and thoughtful but it didn’t connect with me.
