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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.7/100, a mean average of 72.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

I consider myself a fan of Interpol. And when I say fan, I don't mean I'm one of those people who only likes the first two albums and thinks everything else is trash - I actually like a good amount of their later work as well. I'm not trying to come off as a hater, and if you like this EP, then good! It's never my intention to make people feel bad for liking things.

Anyway, if it wasn't clear yet, I was not fond of this EP. I don't think that it's insultingly bad or anything, but it just feels so phoned in to me. There are points on this thing were it just feels messy...and not in a way that feels purposeful, such as in lo-fi music or garage rock. And don't get me wrong, I love a lot of projects that sound rough around the edges. But in those cases, that raw sound is driven by vibrant creative energy, something which I unfortunately find this EP to be lacking. Over the years, people have said that Interpol is one of those bands that captured lightning in a bottle with their first record, and then would spend the rest of their career trying to recreate that one jolt of excitement. That was never me - I always felt that Interpol still had the potential to put out another stellar project. But at this point, this EP has managed to make me feel worried. I'm still not giving up hope yet (some would call me naive), and I still love Interpol. The good news is that this EP is pretty similar to Marauder, so if you thoroughly enjoyed that album then you will probably like this as well. For everyone else, however, that same reaction will likely not be elicited.
