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 86.4/100, a mean average of 84.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

Many see this as the ultimate shoegaze album and it’s easy to see why. It is one of the most perfect examples of merging vastly opposing sound and textures. The merging of the whirring, motor like instrumentation with the soothing harmonious vocals is fantastic. The infectious choruses hold the songs together fantastically well and, along with the soothing and dreamy vocals, provide a perfect antidote to the chaos of the instrumentation. This album is almost like a drug. It calms you, it soothes you, it makes you go into your own world where everything, just for that moment, is OK. A simply stunning piece of music.

A challenging listen that took me a while to fully appreciate. After a few listens the sonic masterpiece starts to find ways for the melodies to get under your skin, it challenges you to focus your ear in to different elements of sound that usually don't fully engage you. The album forces you to engage and if you let it, it showers you in a warm fuzzy sound that starts to make you think and feel introspectively. It really is one of a kind.

Sometimes atonal, sometimes repetitive, sometimes chaotic. One thing remained constant: I was looking forward to the album ending.

There is A LOT going on here, and some may find it to be too chaotic. It's certainly not for everyone, but it is a wild and creative offering.

I understand that it inspired a number of artists, but it's not my thing. To much layers of noise.

Rock on estrogen is how I would describe this underappreciated masterpiece. Nothing that came before or after has ever replicated the sound crystallized on this album. Pure bliss, best appreciated at the loudest volume you have available. If you already know the album, I'd recommend finding the track "blown a wish" played in reverse and slowed down. Gave me a whole new appreciation for what I'd always seen as a relatively weak track.

1991 fue un año de grandísimos discos. Pero este no es para mí.
