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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.6/100, a mean average of 80.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

This album is more complex than Tidal I think for its rhythms. This album is great. Love the instrumentals on this album. I only know her first two albums but I should be hearing her other stuff. So far I am impressed with her music

When the Pawn... Tan solo el segundo album de Fiona Apple y ya demuestra el tema principal de sus canciones: la obsesión amorosa. Tiene un buen catálogo de canciones, entre las que sobresaltan Paper Bag, On the Bound y Fast As You Can, que tienen merecidas sus estrellas en este sitio web. Es un serio competidor al título de mejor disco de Fiona Apple junto con The Idler Wheel. Simplemente genial.

This is a lot better than Tidal and you can see how far the artist has progressed in between those releases. She sounds a lot more mature and the song writing is vastly improved in my opinion. Sonically, it is far superior as well with there being a lot more to explore and a lot more little nuances to fall in love with. This is also a very consistent release with every song being good or great and only one or two songs feel a bit weaker. Her vocal performance as well is brilliant and sounds so rough and gritty to listen too. However, I wouldn't say any song is truly outstanding and I think there are releases by this artist which are slightly stronger. Overall, another fantastic album from a very consistent and intelligent artist.

I have only recently bought this album as both this and indeed Fiona Apple had completely passed me by. Bought on a whim but so glad I did, strong performance and easy to listen to without a weak song. Solid
