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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

“Bright Green Field” is maniac tangent heavy album. Obscure topics will be pursued with incredible vigor. The song structure is consistently surprising. Verse chorus Verse will be broken down into long noisy interludes or soft quiet passages. My main gripe with the album is the vocals. Judge’s singing comes off in this flat strained manner. In addition, he will break into these yells to try and bring more emotion to the song. They are ill timed and feel unearned while bringing additional attention his voices flatness. Squid has great energy, they just need to balance it better.

What a debut, expecting bigger things from this band in the future, fresh post-punk

Very good debut album from this Brighton, East Sussex band, with influences from jazz and 70s German bands (such as Can and Neu!). Excited to see how they progress their sound with the next few albums

2021 (especially the first half) has been absolutely amazing for the world of post punk, honestly it’s the only genre that had anything exciting going on during that time. Bright Green Field is a truly an experience. The vocals are ear grabbing and the instrumentation is lush and full of variety. The themes in the songwriting make this for a very rewarding listen as you dive more and more into the meaning which isn’t very apparent upon first (or even second and third) listen.
My issues here are that most of the songs last a little longer than they should. The long instrumentals sprinkled in randomly through this album mess with the flow of the project. Not that they’re not good but they overstay their welcome. Some tracks feel out of place compared to the other heavy hitters. Songs like Paddling, Peel St., and The Flyover feel like the were b-tracks shoved in to make a decent run time.
Overall a very enjoyable and rewarding listen, one of my favorite albums so far this year.
Best tracks: GSK, Global Groove, Documentary Filmmaker, Narrator, Boy Racers, and Pamphlets (I just couldn’t narrow it down more) 8.5/10

Interesting but a bit self-indulgent. Most of the songs are longer than they need to be I think. I don't think the extended jams add all that much to them. The riffs that they play around with are entertaining and the vocals are impressive but I wonder how long the lead singer can maintain that voice.
