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)

Best Beach House record. Very listenable and atmospheric.
Moments of sheer beauty and fantastic melodies. It’s a joy to listen to but have found myself visiting this Beach House album a lot less than Teen Dream and 7.
A lot of times, dream pop or electronic music makes me wonder what planet the artists are from. This record was made by people who clearly inhabit Earth. This is truly beautiful music accompanied by lyrics with heart and soul. Nearly every song is breathtakingly lovely.
The first half of this album is exceptional but it goes through a weak spell in the middle and never reaches the same heights after that. The first 5 songs to me are just pure perfection. From the instrumentation to the vocals it always leaves me in awe at how good those songs are. Lazuli, Myth and Other People being the standouts for me and I think there is a strong case for them being Beach House's best ever songs. They all feel so delicate and are beautifully arranged that makes them sound so pleasant to the ear. Another major strength of this album is that it is very difficult to get sucked out of the music and the group do a fantastic job at maintaining your intrigue for the full run time except for the silence part on Irene. However, there is a two song weak spell in Troublemaker and New Year. They aren't bad songs but just don't have the same edge or power and can feel like filler. The group do pick it up after this and create some very high quality music but it is still a little weaker than the peak at the opening of the album. Overall, this is a phenomenal release that feels dreamy and unique and it is an elite record but isn't competing at the very top due to those two tracks in my opinion.
Hadn't heard them until I heard this album. Instant like and thought the atmosphere and haunting vocals were captivating

Bloom contains some nice lush instrumentation (despite their affinity for what seems to be the cheapest drum machine they could find), but suffers from colorless songwriting. If you're looking for something pleasant and fluffy, I recommend this album. If you're looking for substance, I recommend elsewhere.
Fav. Tracks: Myth, Wild, Lazuli.
Relaxing, carefree and beautiful.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
