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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.4/100, a mean average of 70.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

This is great! She rediscovers/reimagines some of her old sounds and it works very well. It's like a clash of her albums Homogenic, Vespertine and even Medulla in a way.

What is there to say about Björk and her oeuvre that hasn't been said already? Another magnificently unique, dense and original work of real complexity that continues to push new conceptual realms while exploring different instrumentation and sonic palettes. Although I agree with the previous comment that the pieces could benefit from a little more melodic direction, I always find Björk's voice to be gorgeously expressive and emotive just by itself and often think multiple listens are essential for the music and its meaning to really unlock and reveal the true beauty underneath.

Bjork of course is always interesting and a new album is always much anticipated. But I have the same problem with "Fossora" that I had with "Utopia", the lack of memorable melodies. On almost every song Bjork just seems to sing in the same key and uses the same vocal phrasing which leave the listener with no discernible melodies to grab on to. It's like the songs float into one ear and out the other. The hooks of "Debut","Post","Homogenic" and "Vespertine" are long gone and we are just left with another frustrating and cold Bjork album. It's original, different and interesting but Bjork albums are just not compelling anymore. Bring back the melodies.
