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 82.1/100, a mean average of 81.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

It's for a golden-hour summer in the woods, a dark wintery night on a mountain, the first fall of leaves in the autumn and when the snow melts in the spring. It's for every moment, big or small, happy or sad, lonely or comforted. A masterpiece.
If you’re ever feeling a bit on edge, irritated, or like you’re about to lash out at someone you love, just pop this album on and let go.
I’m lying on a gently moving cloud, but it’s warm and snug and I am floating over ice-melts in an Icelandic summer burst of lushness. This is just about the most perfect eyes-closed album. It only rates as a 90 because I can never easily tell anyone what the album is called.
I remember the first time I watched a Sigur Ros video. I remember an apocalyptical kindergarten, where kids acted like kids running around ashes and snow from the nuclear winter. There we have the tension of the whole album: a celebration of innocence and life even in the most unrelenting spaces. In the Ambiental sounds that create darkness, Jonsi's voice grows.
Got into this Icelandic band in 2018 and enjoy their ambient electronic sound. Who cares if you cant understand the words - often he isn't even using Icelandic words - it's more about the feel. This isn't a dire album unless you want to feel dire - place your own emotions onto the soundscape.
Everything on this album sounds the same, and I can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
Very soothing and enjoyable album. My only concern is that it seems to go on for just a bit too long.
The most brooding Sigur Ros piece I have found so far. It seems slower, heavier, and more spacious than "Aegetis Byrjum" (or however its spelled), and all that along with being darker compared to "Takk...", my personal favorite.
I loved Ágætis Byrjun, but found this pretty boring, and I'm not sure why.
I did really enjoy three or four other Sigur Ros albums. However, this one I feel is almost too Sigur Ros, its just a tad boring at times. The second half of the album is definitely stronger for me.
I don't want to absolutely love sigur ros and put all of their albums on my top 100, but once you start listening to an album by them..you get in this lull..and the atmosphere is so pretty and you feel calm and ahh..I love it..im going to see them live too for the first time in a month..Super Excited!!
