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 This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.9/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.0.

A rough and raw record from Pavement that seems to be quite divisive on whether it is good or not. Musically, it is nothing complex or mind blowing as it is relatively simple in its composition. Where it does shine however is in its sound. They seem to capture a unique tone and create an atmosphere that sounds so heavy and powerful. With the fuzzy guitars and outstanding performance on the drums it really does demonstrate that raw garage sound that is so difficult to capture on an album. Overall, it might be a little inconsistent with some of the songs feeling like filler but it captures a unique sound and deserves a lot of praise for the experience it gives the listener.

There’s lots of types of “anti-music”, where the artist’s intent is more about feel than strict musicality. And, honestly, the reaction to anti-music becomes almost entirely subjective. It hits you right or it doesn’t.

This album, which I think of as punk rock on downers, hits me right. I won’t be able to convince you if you feel differently.

A bare-bones musical accomplishment. Moods, vibes, and sounds from 60' garage, Velvet, and Stooges means something to people being in their teens in 1992, I can understand the simpleness and rawness attracting them. For a boomer to like this, it needs more listening and mind shifting.

This is the indie record that thinks it's cooler than Taylor Swift. One of the worst front man performances I have heard on a rock album, coupled with production that is just awful. Clocking in at shorter than 40 minutes, this album found a way to make every song drag on. A big waste of time.

My favorite album. I listened to this album so much during my college years. Pavement was my favorite band during my university years (93 - 97) and this was my favorite album. It's tough to find a bad track. And if you include the b-sides and EPs (Watery, Domestic is incredible) that came around the same time as this album and you have an amazing run by an amazing band.

Their most raw and Velvet Underground tone album ever made. It is 90's indie rock by heart. Probably one of my favorite debut records of all time. It's noisy distortion guitar and mumbling vocals are what gives away the tone of the album.
