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 has a Bayesian average rating of 74.1/100, a mean average of 73.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

Bizarrely beautiful and at the same time beautifully bizarre, even for Björk.

Pretty much the same thing I said for "Volta". Some of the tracks on here (I'm talking about "Crystalline", "Sacrifice" & "Mutual Core") are all really cool and a welcome change for Björk w.r.t genres, but quite a few tracks wander aimlessly into space. The "Dark Matter" and "Hollow" middle-section is suitably dark, but feels a bit like dead weight, and elsewhere there are pretty tracks (like "Virus" and "Solstice") that unfortunately don't hold a candle to her former glories. Nonetheless, it's a small improvement over "Volta" and a very good record.

Not as good as a lot of her previous albums, but it marks a slight step-up from "Volta" and no-one can doubt the sheer ambition she brings to each album. If her lyricism may seem slightly stale, the production certainly isn't. Like many of Björk's albums, "Biophilia" does manage to transport you to another world yet it also surprisingly has a couple of pop-like bangers ("Crystalline", "Mutual Core"). It's an interesting album that's well worth anyone's time.

the actual concept of nature/space/science/existence in this record is actually a cover of what's to come on vulnicura

biophilia is nearly as heartbreaking as vulnicura but in a domestic level i'd say. if you listen from different angles you could enjoy it as another precious björk album rather than take it as a school lesson from your weird teacher

One of my favourite Bjork albums. Biophilla, sees Bjork exploring the beginnings of time, space and humanity. It's a beautifully ambitious record, and as always Bjork never fails to amaze. It's a stunning album, this is music of the future. Brilliant.
