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 83.2/100, a mean average of 81.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Primera escuchada y mis primeros sentimientos es que no me ha parecido tan bestial en comparación a sus otros albums como Homogenic o Post, háganme el favor de disculparme antes de apedrearme, aunque eso no significa que el album esté mal, de hecho, es grandioso. Primero, tiene unas cuantas canciones guapísimas, sobre todo las primeras son las que más me han cautivado. Mis dos favoritas: It's Not Up to You y Hidden Place. La otra maravilla del album me parece Pagan Poetry. Ahora, mi problema es que hay unas 4 o 5 que sí las considero medio flojitas, como Frosti, que es un instrumental corto, entiendo que no debería ser muy duro con esta canción, pero aunque le ponga consideración no me termina de enamorar. Siguiendo, An Echo A Stain me pareció un poco olvidable en comparación al resto de las obras maestras del disco, y otras 2 que también están regular pero no me llegan a encantar tampoco son Sun in my Mouth, Heirloom y Harm of Will. Me veo revisando de nuevo este disco una y otra vez, pero por ahora no logro entender que sea mejor que Homogenic. Supongo que tendrá que crecer conmigo.

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.
