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 73.9/100, a mean average of 72.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

Lets face it this is a Breeders album , and secondly its really good

Background: Kim Deal whilst on an indefinite Breeders hiatus was originally going to release this as a solo album before sister Kelly contributed on 3 tracks and Jim McPherson was brought in and finally Dayton musicians Luis Lerma and Nate Forley to round out the group

So where do The Amps sit in the Pixies / Breeders lore ?

1991: 'Trompe le Monde' Pixies final studio album released
1993: 'Last Splash' Breeders released

2 Years Pass ....

1995: ' PACER' THE AMPS RELEASED

7 years roll by ..........

2002: 'Title TK' The Breeders released

As a massive Pixies / Breeders fan 'Pacer' is highly under appreciated and is an absolute must for any fan

It's good, but I prefer the Breeders albums. No one track really stands out but it's always good to hear a bit of Kim Deal's take of alternative rock.
