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 81.3/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.8.

Seriously, how could you not feel this? Also, to anyone who is an up themselves classical snob complaining that this is somehow overrated on here...it's not. Maybe it has wider appeal to people raised on other musics, bit like jazz snobs sniffing and scoffing at non jazz fans love of Kamasi Washington. With him and with this I just feel both immensely. That's it.

Minimalism at it's very best. This is thoroughly modern music that doesn't complely forsake its past. A remarkable achievement.

"Fratres" and "Tabula rasa" are the MVP's here, and the latter is simply the most beautiful classical piece ever composed. The title piece is an emotionally raw outpouring of catharsis and stuns with its deceptively simple composition style. A must-hear for anyone interested in classical music, its quality and place in the musical canon are indisputable.

Haunting minimalism. There are just a few minimalist pieces that stick out above the rest and this is the best of them.

Album has this sound of waiting for bad news in Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten. It is alright though as it is music and make believe.

“I have discovered that it is enough when a single note is beautifully played. This one note, or a silent beat, or a moment of silence, comforts me. I work with very few elements - with one voice, two voices. I build with primitive materials - with the triad, with one specific tonality. The three notes of a triad are like bells and that is why I call it tintinnabulation”- Arvo Pärt
