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 7% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

Very somber album compared to the preceding one. That said, there are some really beautiful songs in here, and easily stands in as one of their best records.

Favorite tracks: Loop the Loop, Reach a Bit Further, Bed of Nails

It took me a while to get into this one, although eventually it did grow on me. Having said that, it's my least favourite Wild Beasts album but it's good they recorded something more restrained. Good, not great.

first time i heard this album, i thought i'd accidentally purchased the new "tame beasts" album and not the new one from the "wild beasts". it's a good record, but it was a little bit of a let-down for a band i have really high expectations for.

The first half of the album feels so perfect that as some people would say "it insists upon itself". However, from track six the vibe of the album is a bit deeper and you can sense a sort of soul out there that make it, all in all, a fair album. Invisible is a standout here...
