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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Incredible stuff. I've realized I need to check out more Perfume Genius based on this record.
Falls just short of the ludicrously high bar set by "No Shape". Mike's music is still evolving, which has been an incredible thing to witness so it's absolutely worth listening to. I LOVE the all out overpowering moments like "Describe" and "Some Dream", and "Nothing at All" hits such a swagger and stride how can you not love it. But there is a nice variety of sounds and emotions to indulge in. It's great to hear "On the Floor" when I'm at starbucks, but I can't help but wonder why of all Mike's songs that has become the one that gets the attention. Moonbend stands out as a bit of a risky move, but it is well executed and although it may sometimes be a skip from me I can really appreciate it nonetheless. I had to look up the lyrics on Jason to figure out what he was saying at the end but it's pretty hilarious and I salute him. The occasional references to his past are handled with grace and forgiveness, and I'm loving him even more in these moments. I can still never figure out how exactly he feels or felt about these things, but he has spoken more than enough about it and it's great to see him moving past it with such a healthy attitude.
Literally left no impression on me. Nothing majorly against it, I just didn't find it at all special.
Another fantastic, beautiful album from Perfume Genius. I did like the previous album more but I feel this one still has plenty of room to grow on me.
"Set My Heart On Fire Immediately" is such a lush intimate work. Hadreas puts such emotion into every song. I love the reoccurring theme of emotional vulnerability. The climax to this is the gentle "Jason", which describes the encounter with soft vocals and fairy tale harpsichord. "Your Body Changes Everything" is sharp with synths and electric flutes. Unfortunately, I do think the album has some flaws. I do think some of the quieter tracks have less presence. "Borrowed Light" is a weaker closer than I would have hoped. The whole of album is strong enough that I'm glad it opened up to us.
Fantastic album that utilizes multiple different genres to create an emotional roller coaster. From the start, the record goes through changes in tone and style without ever losing its allure.
I need to listen to this album again, might not be getting the whole picture. I do think some songs took me out of the experience and felt a bit dull. However, there are some absolute killer songs on this album (some of the best released this year)
Favorite songs: On the Floor, Without You, Nothing At All
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Maybe I'll come around a little more, but it does feel a little too long. But otherwise, it's as immaculate as you might expect from a Perfume Genius record. A strong follow-up to No Shape.
It is as if the limitations of the English language are a barrier on this album, because there is so much weight and significance put on every syllable of every word, and it still doesn't feel enough. You have to listen to this with the same intensity as Mike puts into it to get on the same wavelength.
This album just goes on to prove that Perfume Genius is one of the most important queer artists in music right now.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
