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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.2/100, a mean average of 74.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

I don't understand how the Cranberries are still undervalued with the huge amount of extraordinary albums they have.

EEIDISWCW is one of the best debuts in music, with a clear and defined style of music, made from post-punk influences, classic rock and English pop of The Smiths.

We are facing an album where the weakest track does not fall below 9/10 and with several 10/10 to its credit, such as Not Sorry, Sunday and Linger.

Please leave prejudices behind. The Cranberries are one of the great bands in rock history, value their legacy.

There has been some odd criticism of Dolores O’Riordan’s voice, but its place in the 90s zeitgeist is assured. The follow-up sold more, but this album must be the defining statement of the band’s artistic intent. Guitars chiming like The Smiths, dolorous like The Cure and lush like only themselves, The Cranberries forged a path of their own in Everybody Else…. The album is melodic and well-produced, and the songs sit together well, complementing each other throughout the running order. For the most part, it’s not an album to feel happy to, but it is an album to feel happy about.
High Points: Dreams; Linger; I Still Do; Sunday

Dolores' voice and the melodies make this a terrific album, with hardly a bad track. They have a distinctive sound that gets old after a little while, but for 40 minutes it's great.

Un disco bueno que creo decae un poco en la parte final con dos temas que en mi opinión destacan sobre las demás, los cuales son Linger y Dreams, aunque Sunday y I Still Do son bastante buenas para mi gusto.

Her voice is mesmorizing for me... even something mediocre transforms into something much more interesting due to the vocals.

Always thought the marriage of sound and voice worked well with the Cranberries. Shame they never amounted to much more than a couple of decent albums.

Very good alternative rock album. Best 10 songs average is 91,3/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Best and full scoring songs are "Dreams" and "Linger". Followed by "Sunday" and "Wanted" both 90/100. All other songs good 80-85/100.
