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 Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 79.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

They will probably be good.
Need to drop the teen angst approach and those pretentious vocals.

Sounds like all my favorite experimental, progressive rock, and art-punk albums got in a fight with each other

The diffusion of genre is impressive, unfortunately that's all this album really has going for it. Somehow the music isn't very interesting at all, and the vocals are just straight up awful, especially on bmbmbm, which I felt was the weakest song by far. It sounds like the French knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Only song that I liked was Western, also Ducter was okay, the other songs sounds more or less like chaotic noise. I like bands like Mars Volta or Swans, which have a similar approach, but this doesn't sound appealing or interesting to me. Sometimes there are good ideas in a song, but I wouldn't want to hear the whole song again.

I can really appreciate music that plays with rhythms, but I'm not just gonna praise everyone that does that. I've heard better. It's too random: I want my experimental music to make me go "how do you come up with that?", and not "why do you come up with that. Here and there they go into Trout Mask Replica territory too with melodies that don't make sense, quite succesfully I have to say, but I still have to hear one example of that style that really convinces me to take it serious. This is definitely not going to do the trick, for me (which isn't important) and for future artists. That is: we will not hear anything of this in the future, if we're going to assume this band added anything considerably to the style in the first place. The vocals sound like all '80s metal bands. The riffs too (I mean the snippets), even though they sometimes seem to go to hardcore punk too; I mean why not, it's already decades after any of those genres are any relevant, so there's no need to feel any rivalry.

A sprightly stiching of well-worn threads, still nicer to admire at in the window than to actually wear but provides a solid fusion nonetheless if nowhere near the genre-breaking stroke of genius it's being hyped up to be... temper expectations and it will be a lot more rewarding.
