|Avg. album rating
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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.6/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Best track for me: The Medication Is Wearing Off.
Apesar de longo não é cansativo.
I think this is a huge step down in terms of quality in comparison to Beautiful Freak. The music seems so empty at times and l found myself not being able to focus on the album. The sound is quite disinteresting and the instrumentation is bland for the majority of the record leaving us to just lull through the release. There are obviously glimpses of quality which show us they can still make exciting and vibrant music but it doesn't take that long to go back to being slow again. Overall, I was majorly disappointed when revisiting this album as I loved it when I first heard it but now it seems to have lost that spark and I am noticing a lot more flaws in the music.
I changed my mind. This album is great in a wholly unique way.
The notion that tragedy will immediately equal artistic brilliance is immediately disproven by this album. The music is fine enough, nothing super interesting. The background for this album is significantly more interesting than the music itself.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
This is a great album about tragic life events. Consistently good throughout with a generally sombre tone to match the events. But he bears his soul bravely here and shares his pain but you don't feel that he is seeking our sympathy, he just wishes to express these events and thoughts for himself and perhaps they will help others deal with similar situations
Elizabeth on the Bathroom Floor, Electro Shop Blues, Baby Genius, Climbing To The Moon, The Medication Is Wearing Off and P.S. You Rock My World all stand out tracks with all others still good although not too keen on Hospital Food
If you've never heard this album I would strongly recommend to first have a listen , then jump on line & learn about the tragic real life circumstances behind this album & then go back and have a second listen . Trust me you will get the most from this album following this method.
Sad , sad album that is consistently good rather than brilliant ( IMHO there is no one killer diller track/ tracks) .
Quite rightly sits within the BEA overall top 500 ( as of February 2017).
Best Tracks: Hospital Food, Ant Farm
If you don't cry during Climbing up to the Moon I don't know what to say to you.
Your feedback for Electro-Shock Blues
A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
