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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.5/100, a mean average of 82.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

A fantastic record from Modest Mouse that is consistently great in everything it does. They maintain their atmosphere and style really well on here with every song fitting together well. This makes this a cohesive and fulfilling listen by the time you get to the conclusion. Instrumentally, it is extremely strong with the guitar and drum work being standouts across the whole release. The performances given on these two instruments are simply brilliant and they compliment each other nicely. I also love how well they utilise the violin on here with it adding such a unique edge to the music that you don't get with other albums. The best example of this for me is near the end of The Stars Are Projectors where the violin really shines for me and it makes that track one of my favourites on the whole release. However, by the end of the record I do think it does get quite repetitive musically and this can make this album feel like a bit of a drag when you revisit it. Overall, I do believe the Lonesome Crowded West is slightly superior to this album but this record is still elite and it has so many stand out moments that will make you want to keep coming back to it time and time again.
Fun and creative music. Guitar and drum interplay is outstanding.
Brock’s lyrics are occasionally interesting but typically drift into bitterly tearing down a strawman of his own creation.
I should stop neglecting this album, its so fun and creative.
Se deja escuchar. Suena bien
Muita força e muita arte nesse álbum. Incrível!
Quite a difficult choice between this one or The Lonesome Crowded West as their crown achievement. It's like Pixies trying to do a Pink Floyd album. Already picked it up at first listen.
Fav. Tracks: 3rd Planet, Dark Center Of The Universe, The Cold Part, Alone Down There, The Stars Are Projectors, Life Like Weeds.
Meh! Different. I Kinda Liked it. Rating (76.33)
Indie space punk? Hell yeah.
