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 87.0/100, a mean average of 86.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

This is the best album from a new band I have heard since the debut albums by Arcade Fire or even the Strokes, it is mightily impressive.

In recent years I haven't had much motivation to listen to new music, but I'm glad I gave this a shot. The comparisons with Arcade Fire are inevitable, but whereas AF's music at it's core is fairly simple, this album at least to my ears is anything but. Good stuff!

“Ants From Up There” is a more intimate project. The frantic jazz rock of the previous album is replaced with quieter guitars and horns. The decreased energy makes the instrumentals less engaging overall but puts more attention to the vocals and lyricism. Wood delves even deeper into his feelings of anxiety and self-loathing. His commitment and passion do a lot to break the malaise of the longer tracks. The lyricism is creative with limitations. Many lines provide beautiful metaphors of dying relationships, while others come off as obtuse rambles. ““Ants From Up There” is emotional but not precise enough to be moving.

Buen album de art rock. Mis favoritas son The Place Where He Inserted the Blade, Concorde y Chaos Space Marine. Una lástima la partida Isaac Wood. Su vocal performance es genial en TPWHITB.

I'm gonna make a writeup on this eventually (it's absolutely gorgeous), but until then I'm just gonna whine about how absolutely insufferable some fans of BC,NR have been. I've never seen a group so thoroughly miss the point of a work...outside of Car Seat Headrest fans and Twin Fantasy (Face to Face), maybe.

"Beautifully depressing" is such a sad, self-serving way to think about what this album means. I really hope that's not been most people's takeaway. Nothing about Ants From Up There is wallowing or self-pitying.

I wasn't that sold to them after the first album but this one was great. Loved place where you inserted the blade and concorde a lot

Rational and emotional, cheerful and deeply sad, it's amazing how this album integrates all the contradictions in a musical masterpiece. Best indie album we have heard since Carrie & Lowell and, if you want, since Funeral. Most of us agree and time will probably consolidate this position.
