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 73.6/100, a mean average of 73.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

A rhythmic party where there’s no dress code required. Dancing, not moshing. Hips jerking, feet slipping, brain firing in sparks of joy and empathy. Underground but never dark. Still young, after some years, even as the heavy, heavy weight of the world seems to grow day by day.

If you compare "Heavy Heavy" to the rest of their discography, there is a debate about the quality of the individual songs if you only look at the purely intrinsic level. On the other hand, the outcome of the project and the exciting and masterful concept make "Heavy Heavy" an album of great value »

Key songs : I Saw / Drum

A challenging listen, with a strange combination of otherworldly aesthetics and some catchy vocal lines. The energy in it can sometimes be overwhelming. Definitely worth listening (6/10), but not really loving it.

Favorites: Drum, Geronimo, Holy Moly

Spiritual and earthy, ‘Heavy Heavy’ is a nice development of the unique sound Young Fathers carve out for themselves.

Great solid record and a beautiful discovery. It adds some fizz to the numbness of what has been this year (musically speaking) since now

Their 2018 album was my favorite of that year. This one is great but I don't think I like it as much. It's definitely more emotional and spiritual but not as fun. It will probably stay pretty high in 2023 at least and was my most anticipated album this year. My expectations were pretty high and filled pretty solidly on point I'd say.
