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 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.7/100, a mean average of 75.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.1.

Not my cup of tea. I hate when people say an album is boring but I have to say it about this one. I prefer their debut and will jump to other albums to see if I get the connection with them somewhere else.

Their barest, most haunted work. 'Over the Ocean' is a song that brings you out of time itself.

They whispered their fears into each other ears as the world caved in on itself.

I think this might be Low's slowest, most drawn out, and depressed album. On one side we have the gentle pop melody of Over the Ocean, on the other the 15 odd minutes of drone and delay that is Do you know how to waltz.
