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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 75.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

Never has (indie folk/rock) singer-songwriter fare been more unfocused and pointless.

With a few exceptions, I didn't find this particularly appealing.

The companion album to, want one, is a darker and more moody record. Kicking off with, Agnus Dei, an atmospheric track based on a Turkish prayer or something. The one you love, is probably the most conventional number here, while, peach trees, has that kind of sweet brooding that Wainwright does so well. Gay messiah, is a standout, as is, waiting for a dream, and the Jeff Buckley tribute, Memphis skyline. The album ends with, old whore's diet, a duet with Anthony Hegarty. A superb record, the darkness to, want one's, light, it really should have been a double CD,(in fact, it was released as a limited edition 2CD set called, want), it would have been even more of a masterpiece than it is now.
