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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.3/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Very consistent album, almost every track is good. My highlights are Dashboard, Little Motel and We've Got Everything. I do find the singer's voice a little bit grating though I must say.
Some great songs on here, all sung / shouted / yelped in Isaac Brock's unique style.
"Someday you will die somehow and something's gonna steal your carbon"
Only "found" them this year and this is my fourth album. I'm loving everything they are delivering and this is no exception. Continuing my new found love for Modest Mouse in 2019, I was blown away with the opening 6 songs. It does dip a bit after that but returns strong towards the end with Spitting Venom and People As Places As People
Sooo underrated. It's a 9/10 and still probably my fourth favorite album of theirs
our ideas held no water, but we used them like a dam.
I think Parting Of The Sensory is my favourite Modest Mouse track and possibly the best track Johnny Marr has been involved with since the Strangeways Here We Come sessions!
Compared to their other albums, this is like a power pop album. Good good
Don't get why everyone hated it, most all songs I could listen to 3 times in a row.
Me too Rucker. I think its still my favorite.
I got into Modest Mouse after Good News, but this was my first anticipated release from them. This was exactly what college-age me wanted.
