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 76.5/100, a mean average of 75.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

Definitely his best work, I was so beyond impressed. I only wish he was here with us to hear the final product. Definitely should be top ten for 2020.

Just not my thing. The production is excellent. I like the existentialist bent. "Woods" is one of my favorite tracks of the year. But it's a little static and stripped down for my taste.

"Circles" has a really interesting start. The first 4 tracks create a unique sound with its low-fi synth and piano. This is very pleasant at first but, as the album moves forward it never really develops into anything. The tracks become sparser and less memorable. Lyrically, I find it sincere but too minimalist for its own good.

Beautiful closure to his career. His final two records with Jon Brion are really getting to something special. Sad to know the world won't know what could've been next, but this is a beautiful ending.

I heard the album now about 4 times and it's okay to hear. But it does not spark joy. I like to hear it when working, but no song was outstanding.

Not much depth. Enjoyable at first but not much replay value. Some of it is emotional in context.
