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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.7/100, a mean average of 79.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Beautifully wistful, very powerful album. Songs that take you on a journey, and beautifully produced as well. Highlights: Punisher, Halloween, Moon Song, ICU, I Know the End
Lowlight: Garden Song

first listen and I think that this is going to be a grower. I think that she is very talented and I'll not sure at the moment why I'm not quite getting it yet but a few more listens might resolve that. Not bad, just not great, yet!

Did not know who Phoebe Bridgers was before listening to this, but I'll definitely be listening to more of her. Wonderful album.

Great songwriting, great melodies. This is the soundtrack when you are weeks at home because of Covid. This is the soft pillow where you can rest your head in those tough times. I like every song on the album and with "I know the end" there is the great finale which gives the album a special outro.

"Punisher" is effective journey into melancholy self reflection. Bridger's soft vocals really add to the emotion of the album. "Kyoto" really got to me with its theme not being able to escape complex feelings no matter where you go. I do think the album throws it's best punches on the A-side. The latter half is still enjoyable but loses a lot of the weight for me.

Pretty easily my favorite album from 2020. The lyrics on multiple songs hit hard. Truly a masterpiece.

Favorite Songs: Kyoto, Chinese Satellite, ICU, I Know The End

The classic slow burner. Only Kyoto and I Know the End grab immediately, but repeated listens reveal delights throughout the album.

This albums' slow climb to the very top is representative of how it affects the listener. I first heard it and was like "yeah that was fine". Then months passed and I gave it no attention. Then I went back to it, and realized how much more than 'fine' it actually is! If it doesn't capture you on first listen, give it another chance. This album is the epitome of a slow burner, and really captures the melancholy of 2020.
