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 81.6/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

This album is a pretty crazy experience that is extremely unique and strange at times. Despite this I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm very intrigued every time I listen to this record. It is very experimental and so you struggle to find a dull moment on the record and the erratic instrumental and vocal performance is of a very high quality. There are weaker tracks that don't really reach the same level as the best songs on the record but they still remain very interesting and fun. This is definitely a record you have to listen to and truly experience yourself to understand it.
Only one listen in and It's super captivating
Best tracks: A life of possibilities, you are invited, the city, what do you want me to say
Yes it is definitely better the more I listen. "What Do You Want Me To Say" is the definite high point, but overall its a great album, especially if you're looking for a little change of pace from the usual. It really is nothing remotely like anything else
An album that, after two listens, I can definitely tell that I will like a lot later, but not yet. It combines the frenetic and nervous energy of the talking heads with a strange mix of prog/math rock, electronic experimentation, and pop sensibilities.
Some things still seem super annoying though, like the half-beat off rhythm in Gyroscope for no other purpose than to not be 4/4, and the horrendous sounding chord progression in the chorus of the jitters. But we'll see...
a very weird album that gives of a hint of partial insanity. So much fun to listen to and unlike most things that I have ever heard. quickly becoming a personal favourite
One of the best albums I've ever heard, hands down.
An off the wall crazy, and yet beautifully melodic album.
One of my alltime favorite mathrock albums
In my top 10 of all time. Love this record.
