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 81.0/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

There are flashes of what I didn't particularly enjoy about Rid of Me, but this is my favorite PJ Harvey album so far.

Only started listening to this Feb 19. Really like it - touches of Patti Smith, and I hear a bit of Bjork on "Horses In My Dreams".

An awesome record, one of the best of the 2000's. This is love turned me on to her (like so many people I think in my generation.) The whole album is awesome, but does lose some steam halfway through then picks back up. Because of that, I consider this her second best compared to To Bring You My Love. But this is probably a better entry point for people looking to explore her music for the first time.

Told to get more female vocalists into my listening and welcomed PJ Harvey in with this delightful album in 2019

Interesting this is first on the list, for me Dry and To Bring You My Love are better but this one is still really good.

Great album, I’m a PJH fan and prefer this over “ Bring You My Love “. If you’re looking to discover PJH this album is a great entry point. The heaviest moments work best IMO.
