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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

This album has such a specific atmosphere. It's ironic and depressing and I love it? There are times when I can't bear it, there are times when I need it.

Now this is something else.
Stephin Merrit really is a productive pop songwriter with a unique sense of sound.
It is irrelevant that the whole pack doesn't really makes for a formidable album.
The amount of good stuff that will inspire you is great.
The lyrics are awesome.
This one you got to listen once in your life at least.

So many styles and so many ways to sing about love. Masterful work by the Fields.

Simply genius. Some might say it has filler, but I always listen to the whole thing - generally in a few sittings!

Che io sappia esiste un solo disco ( triplo ), raccolte a parte, che mette insieme sessantanove canzoni originali: questo. E soprattutto non credo ne esista un altro che tratti l'amore sotto ogni punto di vista ricorrendo ad una musica pop che concentra decenni e decenni di storia del genere riuscendo ad essere originale, innovativo pure e mai stucchevole.

Who would've thought that the most ambitious album I've ever stumbled upon would be a bunch of love songs...

Light, sunny, cool, not too serious.. Love it!
Cool voice too.
Reminds me of 'Belle & Sebastian' and 'Jens Lekman'.

These are wonderful songs...is it strange to wish that they were sung a bit less ironically?
