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 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

You think he's invincible in those sunglasses? Can't tell

(worth the price of admission for Sunglasses alone- incredible song, especially the 2nd act. Reminds me of The End of Radio)

Luego de leer muchas críticas positivas de este disco lo decidí escuchar. Últimamente este estilo de combinar instrumentales con partes de rock sólidas me está agradando sobremanera. Espero con entusiasmo escuchar su nuevo disco.

“For The First Time” feels like a heavy conversation in the back of a jazz club. The sound is a hybrid of frantic jazz and post rock based guitar soundscapes cut with saxophone. The vocals are these half spoken half sung anxiety trips very similar to the style of The The’s Matt Johnson. Each track tells a different story of worry and self-esteem based around a personal experience. The heaviest of these is “Science fair” which breaks into personal disgust as the sax rises like a pack of howling wolves. The imagery is striking with wood looking at sticky hands with incredible self-loathing. Unfortunately, no other track reaches a similar emotional peak. The formula of spoken word and heavy saxophone becomes expected. The concept show promise but needs to be refined into a more diverse structure.

Hit or miss. There are times the layering of music builds in an inspiring way and the spoken lyrics fit the feel of the song. Other times, instrumentation and vocals get in one another’s way, much like a car crash.
