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 81.6/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

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...

Weird as fuck album. It sounds like if Ben Folds took a bunch of drugs. Even though I like it a lot, it doesn't feel the same as other albums I like. I don't know how to explain it. It's like all the other albums I like are all one category and this one is a completely different category. Like I wanna say I get it but I might not. There might be one day that I listen to this and it finally lands in the same category as the rest of the stuff I listen to, but just a lot better. One thing's for sure I will definitely be coming back to this album a lot over the next couple months.
