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 82.7/100, a mean average of 81.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

A simple and beautiful album. A mix of raw, emotional production, and complex and interesting lyricism. A fantastic folk record with all kinds of twists and turns to keep you interested until the end.

“Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You” is a broad display of Big Thief’s talents. The band is very skilled at changing between their styles. Indie rock, folk, and alt country tracks appear next to each other without feeling out of place. Lenker adds a lot of personality to the song writing. It’s elevated by little quirks like the yelp on “Little Things” or the enthusiasm of “That's my grandma” on “Red Moon”. Unfortunately, these pleasant details are swallowed up in the pure mass of tracks. Between the 20 whole tracks, the charm lessens and the ear fixates more on critical qualities. The commitment to the verse chorus verse structure really wears down the sharpness. It would have greatly helped to throw in an instrumental or try more breaks. A pleasant album but in need of refinement.

As bloated and unmemorable as the album title.
Simulation Swarm is very good and maybe a couple others, but it's a very patience-testing listen.

It's a lot of album. Even after a handful of listens, I can't say I've fully gotten my head around it, but there's a lot of beautiful songwriting and performance here.

Album of the year so far for me. It's a weird mix of melodies with vocals that suit the background. Very good indeed

What a collecton of beautiful melodies. The instrumentation is also quite interesting. Obvious contender for AOY.

A very ambitious project from Big Thief that shows a huge amount of potential but I don't think they have reached their absolute peak yet. You can see the group growing in quality through their albums and they just keep going up and up with this new release. This is primarily due to them being more comfortable with introducing more diverse and experimental instrumentation. This makes for a more rich, grand and in depth record that gives us so much to listen out for. A few examples of this are the use of the fiddle, piano, accordion and flute. Then there is the vast array of guitars used as well and the outstanding bass and percussion performance. They still have quite a lot of room to improve in this department but the slow introduction of more instrumentation is brilliant. The vocal is amazing throughout even though on a few tracks it takes a bit of time to get used to but it still blows me away once I have adjusted to it. It is an extremely unique voice and fits the style perfectly. There are also quite a few songs that can be picked out and be seen as phenomenal. However, the issue with this record is the elongated run time. It doesn't need to be an hour and 20 minutes and that makes the music feel so bloated. Also, the sound gets very repetitive by the time we reach the close of the record and I am ready for it to finish by about the 50 minute mark. Overall, a release that shows brilliant potential that should be realised on later releases but this still has some fantastic moments to enjoy.

A sprawling epic and perhaps Big Thief's most ambitious project yet.
