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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.7/100, a mean average of 82.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

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.

Slows down a bit near the end, other than that a great album. Eric Judy sounds so good on this

I think I don't give this album as much credit as it deserves (and I still give it a LOT); I think that's solely because I got into it during a really strange time in my life where I was clinging to things that weren't good for me. The second half of this record is so heavy and bleak for me in places I can still really feel it, somehow it still stings and reminds me of a lot of darkness that I experienced. But isn't that the mark of truly effective music?

It's also one of the greatest opening songs on a record I've ever heard.
