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 83.3/100, a mean average of 81.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

I've been listening to this compulsively (along with every other Björk album) for the past week or so. This is undoubtedly a beautiful and captivating album. I'm changing my rating from 95 to 100.

This is the first Björk album I've listened to, and I am immediately a fan. Such an incredible voice, great production, amazing songwriting. She's like Kate Bush but more eclectic. I'm sure I will like here other albums.

Follows a similar concept to Homogenic, but showcases some more soul from Björk. The tracks feel romantic to erotic. Definitely my favorite.

I am a big fan of Icelandic music and Björk is for me the perfect pop artist. "Vespertine" marks once again an evolution in the music of the artist, the album is cold and yet so warm, the beauty is at its peak! Björk writes with "Vespertine" his own fairy tale. It is not about poverty but about an album that aims on the contrary homogeneity, where Homogenic paradoxically spread on an extremely varied musical panel. This homogeneity is a richness, Vespertine listening as a story for children. Often the choirs carry the melody to peaks of emotion, it's magic. This is a wonderful album, magical and moving, which differs from the Icelandic discography by its extremely bright side. "Vespertine" is, for me, Björk's best album.

10/10

Beautifully magical across each track. Absolutely heavenly vocals and soothing instrumentals. The kind of album that makes you warm and fuzzy inside on a winter day.
