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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.9/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

Undoubtedly a big inspiration for '00s emo rock, and certainly a lot smarter and less self-involved than the Smashing Pumpkins, but not as musically rewarding though. But as I'm generally not so impressed with '00s emo rock, this too lacks for me in the same positions. Lyrically they are against seemingly everything and everyone (as evidenced from Revol), but they don't hold any stance themselves, at best "humans are the problem". Very helpful. Musically they don't differ much from punk rock, as they are too much invested in the lyrics.

I'm trying to like this and see the power and emotion it draws in others, but to be honest I'm not getting there. Maybe the vocals grate on me a bit? Not sure but not there yet with this one - try again later

Giving it another listen and certainly becoming more enjoyable. She is Suffering, This Is Yesterday and Die In The Summertime all good - perhaps amongst the less frantic stuff

Too bleak for me, not easy to listen to. Much has been made of the clever, emotive lyrics, but as I can't make out most of the words being sung they seem somewhat inconsequential. Not an album I'll return to very often.

Such a rich and rewarding album. My favourite album of all time, but certainly not the most listened to due to the harrowing vibe. I envy anybody to hear the stature of this album and engage in their first listen... you'll still discover amazing things on your 50th hearing.
