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 81.3/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

This album is packed full of unique experimentation that makes the 50 minute run time fly by as there is so much to get stuck into. The instrumentation is diverse and performed to a very high level on this album with all of them playing a vital role. Musically, it is multi-layered and full of depth which allows us to be able to revisit lots of times before you have discovered everything and by the time you get to that point the songs have infected you and you feel almost compelled to listen again. She does a fantastic job at mixing experimentation with catchiness making it stand out but also make you feel comfortable with the music. Her song writing is brilliant as well and has really progressed from her early albums. Overall, another genius and enjoyable album from Fiona Apple that is always a pleasure to revisit and get lost in.
Great ideas in this record with average results. And that duality of great tracking vs extreme compression never helped an album to keep your attention until the end.
Where experimental music can really shine is when the experimentation is done on top of traditional song structures. This record plays with rhythmic sounds (percussion and vocals) but does so in away that complements the other instrumentation, rather than being there primarily for show.
Add in Apple’s sardonic wit and you’re left with a gem.
This whole album is excellent, and just so unique for 2020.
Fiona Apple makes the album that everyone knew she could make all along. I love the experimental approach she took to her typical songwriting approach.
WTF is this?
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Didn’t love this. The rhythms were interesting but the production style and vocals were a little rough for my taste. Also felt like the record insisted upon itself a little too much. Each song could have been 1-2 minutes shorter.
Surprised I never listened to Fiona Apple. Really liked this album. Knowing that this isn't even considered her best by many makes me excited to listen to more.
