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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.0/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

Verging on ambiance, Liz Harris' blend of Psychedelic Folk & Dream Pop is utterly chilling.

A wonderful atmospheric album.
The soundscapes made of reverbs and of Liz's voice convey images of tree shadows or blissful naps during a thunderstorm.

I wonder what the deer smelt like after she got done dragging it. I bet she ate it afterwards. I can dig it.

Perfect autumnal music. She mixes drone, echoes, and guitar to make something that really sounds like no other album. Can this be characterized as ghostly folk? Each song is recognizable so no need to worry if you're going to get a monotonous album here.
