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 25% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.5/100, a mean average of 72.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

this is one of a couple albums that profoundly changed my taste in music. the other is my bloody valentine's "loveless", and i heard that for the first time about a week before i heard "shot forth self living" for the first time. the opening chords of mbv's "almost shallow" gave me a new perspective on the way distortion and melody can work together. but the opening blast of noise and feedback that kicks off "one more" on this album caught me totally off guard... i had never heard anything like it before. and as the song went on, it kept surprising me as different elements took turns at the forefront. and then comes "aruca" with a sound like some giant industrial machine falling apart...

on the whole, this is not my favorite medicine release -- i feel like the second half loses some of the energy that lights up the first half. but the opening few songs are still one of my favorite sequences on any album i've heard.
