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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.5/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

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.

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.

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.

It starts off with a song full of forced tremolos that get more fun as they become more obviously Nicks-ish, and as they become more stretchy get more controversial - for '70s standards. An outro that made my eyes roll towards my brain and back, and I didn't have much incentive to listen on, but I went on anyway.

There are some nice tunes on here. Her spoken word-ish delivery is against my expectations not ruining what could be good songs. Percussions that make me wanna take good care of my feet (okay, no one's gonna get this one: "Take a Load of your Feet" by The Beach Boys). Again, mindblowing stuff, for the '70s, like where the minds of the people are who desperately want this to be a relevant album in the '20s. It's experimental in a good-hearted way, but I wish she would have as much carefree fun with it as she acts like she's having; I mean, with every carefully orchestrated outburst of emotion, and all the hardly audible background noises that shouldn't've been experienced as such (I hope, but I'm probably wrong), I get the feeling that she knows exactly what she's doing, and with a smirk thinks to herself: "the critics are gonna eat this up". Even if I genuinely and whole-heartedly enjoyed every track, there is no doubt in my body that this will not have a lasting effect on the culture of music.
