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 83.9/100, a mean average of 82.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.4.

A great display from Modest Mouse that is full of quality and is a very rewarding listen when you give it time. There more abrasive and harsh sound might not be for everyone but I absolutely love it. Their style of music is so enjoyable to listen to for me and it is extremely well maintained on here. They never really deviate from their style on here either which leads to a consistent and cohesive listen for us. The percussion and guitar work is outstanding on here as well with its heavy and rough sound working so well together. This comes together perfectly on tracks like Trailer Trash, Heart Cooks Brain, Out Of Gas and Doin' The Cockroach. The peak of the record for me comes right at the beginning with the opening song capturing everything you should expect from this release whilst displaying the talents of the group. However, it could be argued that the music isn't that unique and this style has been done before and done better. I don't buy into this argument much as this album is right amongst the greatest in the genre and can compete with the records that came before it. Overall, a great album full of great performances which makes it an elite level album that deserves the praise that it gets as it is a fantastic experience.
Gets a bit repetitive by the end but there’s a lot of fun to be had along the way, with these bizarre screeching lyrics intertwined with slamming guitars.

Por trás de batidas secas existe uma grande qualidade artística! Demais!
I was into Modest Mouse earlier this year and listened to many of their early albums. This one is good but it surprises me to see this in the top 200! I think I'll have to give it a closer listen again.
Building Nothing out of Something may have been my first introduction to Modest Mouse way back in 2003 or 2004. Still a great listen, even though it is an "outtakes" album.
Great album. I don't like it as much as Good news or Moon and Antarctica but it's still great. Best track is Trucker's Atlas
Best album ever!
