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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 6.3.

From the 3 Delgados' albumS I've listened, this is the one I enjoyed the most. It doesn't have the arrangements of The great Estern and its not as bizarely beautiful as Hate but its diverse and eclectic, it has a great combination of voices and it still has that air of melancholly and beauty, dark and sorrow, simply masterful. It is a bit more accesible all right, but that shouldn't have to be a bad thing, and it would be a mistake thinking its commercial or something like that. I would particularly recomend it to thouse who enjoy Beach House or The Dears but beware, The Delgados are far superior than them and many other more known bands.
