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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.1/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.1.

If something like "the new world order" comes after the pandemic, this brilliant album should be the ground-breaking act.

So much of this years music has been a struggle to listen to, not this one, difficult second album it is not, spilling confidently from one track to another.
Sounding distinctly more Alternative than last years Dogrel, a more morose tone is struck. Grian’s vocals are once more an oasis of originality in a desert of fakers. Let me put that again, refreshingly original.
A Hero’s Death will see scenesters leave in droves as with most buzz-bands, but it proves Dogrel was no fluke and there’s more in the tank. Fontaines DC are gonna be with us for a while yet, they ain’t going anywhere.

I'll revisit it after a bit but I just can't get into these guys. I enjoy this more than Dogrel, the isntrumentation is overall great, but the singing is too inconsistent for me
