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 86.3/100, a mean average of 84.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

How arrogant does one have to be to listen to an album that is universally loved by a vast majority of a musically-inclined sample, and to definitively call it "Self-indulgent rubbish"?

If you don't like the album, that's fine. But clearly, many other people do.

Just revisited this album now it's back on Spotify. Definitely deserves its place in the top 25 -- influential and beautiful.

Every so often I have the urge to get in my car and play this at 300 million decibels. One of the most lucid sonic experiences you will ever have, totally incomparable in emotions or intensity or tenderness. All at once both heart-wrenching, mosh-inducing and totally calming. I don't have enough words to describe what it means to me to have this in my life.

Self-indulgent rubbish. I love experimental indie guitar music but there have to be good songs in there, but aside from When You Sleep's catchy synth line there is nothing good here.

One of my favorite albums of all time. It isn’t the easiest to listen to for the first time but the more you listen the more you fall in love with everything. There are so many layers to digest while the vocals hauntingly float in the background. This is shoegaze at its best. Never gets old

This album remains a mystery to me. Despite repeated listenings, I feel that I don't get it, I can't appreciate its greatness. There are 2 or 3 songs that get me lost in the soft, sweet, melodic atmosphere they create, but for the most part it doesn't work for me. Overall, 65/100.

Too much constant fuzz and distortion for me. I don't get the overwhelming praise heaped upon this. But that's the joy of music; different strokes for different folks.

A very original album. Unfortunately the songs dont deliver. The opening track is really good but then the album has other 10 songs, not quite as good as the first one. A good track here and there, but nothing to shout about.

"To Here Knows When" literally gave me a headache. Not album that includes that song should be in the top 20 of all time. But then again, im used to see crazy things here already.

I understand its influence and all but the songs are simply not great. Some are barely listenable. Is obvious that this is an expiremental album, so it should be treated like one, not like some genius masterpiece, beacuese honestly, it is not.

Dont know what goes through the mind of a person to think this is the best album of the 90s, let alone one of the best ever.
