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 mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

This album is a hidden gem that not many people know about. I have owned this album 18 years and one of the few in my collection I always look forward to listening to without fear of playing it out.

I get the feeling she is influenced some by Patti Smith, who has best ever albums herself, classics. I also hear a little Danzig in her voice. I only realized after listening after first hearing Danzig's voice. So I didn't catch that before.

I get the same vibe of Patti Smith from PJ Harvey. Either way, I'm just always astounded at this original work. Underrated, but it doesn't matter. It exists and is there for people to listen to if they want to.

Similar to planetneutral, I can appreciate the originality and raw production but I doubt I will ever put this CD on again. Best track, Rub Till it Bleeds.

Raw. Uncompromising. Provocative. Extreme. Abrasive. Visceral. Melodic. Sexual. Violent. Brilliant.

P.J Harvey's second album is just as raw and uncompromising as her first. Rid of me, is an angry, sexy, and powerful record and Harvey is on top form throughout. Great songs from the pen of PJ and even a cover of Bob Dylan's, highway 61 revisited. Strong stuff.

I have a love-hate relationship with Steve Albini. I love some of the albums he produced - In Utero, Attack On Memory, Magnolia Electric Co - and cannot stand others. This is one of the latter. Other people call it raw but I call it one-dimensional and compressed. Plus I've never loved Harvey's voice and that combined with the tinny production makes this unenjoyable.

Lyrical themes are great and would contribute to a great album if the production was better. Though the Bob Dylan cover feels ridiculously out of place.

One of my teachers introduced me to this album and I was blown away. So raw and in your face yet so perfect. From Harvey to the production nothing is wrong with it. A classic.

I liked this a lot more when it was released but since then I've lost some of my taste for angry grrrrlz who strip away the joy from their music.
