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 is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.0/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

I bet that better bands could be found even from Finland at this particular point in time. I just can't get this sound to affect my soul. I do not hate this , but I can live without this. 70/100 is well enough for this.

A slight notch below Slanted and Enchanted, but only slight. Its probably the apex of Pavement. In the middle of an incredible run. I saw them play a double show (early and late) in 1994. A band at the peak of their powers. Loved this album because I'm empty and you're empty too.

Only coming to this in 2020 - it's my cup of tea without overwhelming me across the whole album. But will return to it over time and get more familiar

Overall, a pretty underwhelming release. I do like the song Range Life, but the rest of it just sounds like generic indie rock to me.

I was consumed with grunge in the 90s. I went back in time and discovered this gem of an album. The highlights for me on this record are Silence Kit, Stop Breathin, Unfair, Range Life, Heaven's a Truck and Hit The Plane Down. Range Life especially hits me in the feels with the Lou Reed-esque style vocal delivery. It's a masterpiece of a song.

I believe this to be not only Pavement's best album but a Top 10 album of the nineties. One of my favorite tracks (Hit The Plane Down) is the lowest rated song on the entire album, and that's just a testament to how solid this is from top to bottom.
