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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.7/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Grande álbum. Tinha tudo para ser pretensioso, mas não é!
This decent pop album of 2010s offers a rather pleasant and lukewarm experience. OK
Half of the songs from the album I liked. My favorite Harmony Hall.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Very polished and very consistent. Each song feels like a complete song and you hear the time and effort that was put into them. The only complaint that I have is that there isn't anything groundbreaking. It's just really good at it's best which is still commendable, in my opinion. I also think he should've used the word "empathy" in "Sympathy" because it seems, to me, that the former is the more appropriate word for a lot of the song.
I liked every recording from Vampire Weekend, they have always a very unique sound. And also with FOTB they released an album, that is different to their previous recordings but nevertheless the unique sound I was expecting from them. The first 4 songs impressed me the most. But also the rest of the album is high in quality and it gets better with every rotation. Definitely one of the Top 5 Album 2019 in my list.
Though it’s a fun springtime album, it’s very over-bloated. The closing track should have come after Flower Moon. I’m okay with double albums, but only if complete ideas are in them.
I’m glad VW are back on the scene, but this is definitely their weakest album.
I've always sat on the fence with the V.W catalogue , I always thought their music was merely okay , not great but not awful either
Fast forward to 2019 and I'm off the fence big time - I love this album !!!
And its counter intuitive to my musical tastes , generally I dislike long double albums and happy ones to boot but something just works with this 18 track 58 minute opus
Like last years 1975 album 'F.O.T.B' is smart , sassy and produced to within an inch of its life in the best possible way . There are so many terrific tracks here: "Hold You Now" , "Harmony Hall" , "Bambina" , "Unbearably White" , the rollicking "Sympathy" and stunning closer "Jerusalem , NY , Berlin" top the bill
Its October 2019 and right now I cant split this album and Fontains DC for AOTY , I guess time will tell
Come on community get on board , this album is simply awesome
It's their messiest, but also might be their most ambitious. It almost needs some 'sober second thought' to reign in the length and some of the loose ends. ...but that might mean taking away its charm.
