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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.5/100, a mean average of 75.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.5.

One of the really few bands of the 90s that just don't miss. I love every record of their discography and this album just stands to its title.

Jason ‘Spaceman’ Pierce is a musical genius and here in 2022 he blows our minds (again) with yet another brilliant no filler opus from top to bottom. His ability to continually churn out sublime quality over the past 30+ years is quite simply ridiculous. Think about that for a minute? In 30 (t-h-i-r-t-y) years we’ve been lucky enough to receive

1992: ‘Lazer Guided Melodies’ 5 Stars

1997: ‘Ladies and Genetlemen . . . . ’ Masterpiece

2001: ‘Let It Come Down’ 4 Stars

2018: ‘And Nothing Hurt’ 4 Stars

With everything else in between rock solid awesome

If ‘Everything Was Beautiful’ does indeed turn out to be JP’s final album swan song, I bend my knee, bow my head and simply say thank you

This album has everything, Beatle-esque songs, Flaming Lips weirdnes, the grandeur of War On Drugs, and a fantastic drive (Best Thing You Never Has even has a Status Quo boogie) sometimes mixed with a bit of country (Crazy).
Only 7 tracks but all of them are spot on. And Nothing Hurt was the best album of 2018 and this is certainly one of the best albums of the year.

This reminds me a little of Animal Collective's release this year 'Time Skiffs' and that's a good thing! Long reign spacey, shimmering, reverby alternative rock music!

This thing actually kinda kicks? So I should preface this by admitting a massive pro-Spiritualized bias. I *want* Jason Pierce to put out another opus, and let myself think maybe each new release will be that. The subliminal Ladies and Gentlemen... callback in the album artwork really helped amp me up this time. The singles suggested something more... tentatively good? So our first single was a song diehards all had heard before – Always Together With You was already released in 2014 – but this new version was a complete re-recording, and arguably a more fleshed out and cleaner mixed one too. Crazy was a pretty good (kinda weak but okay fine) little ditty, not bad? Every song outside those singles kicks. Best Thing You Never Had is straight back to Come Together, and I'm Coming Home Again is the best Spiritualized Closer since Cop Shoot Cop. Just a great Spiritualized record with none of the bad tendencies of Pierce's 21st century output toward over-bloated run-times, painfully gospel nonsense, or "the spaceman" themed bullshit.

This album starts off on a stunning high with the opener “Always Together With You”. This encapsulates everything fantastic about this band. It’s comforting, spacious and soothing, while sounding triumphant and proud at the same time. This is followed by the rocking “Best Thing You ‘ve Never Had" which is the complete opposite of the first track and probably my least favourite of the album because of this. In the mix of all this there is the wonderfully soft country track “Crazy” that suits the vocalist to a tee. The remainder of the track list is filled up with some fantastically well layered pieces of music that are frantic, exciting and energetic throughout.
