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 83.6/100, a mean average of 82.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Another chance, getting play on my main stereo system, but I'm still really struggling. I agree that 'Soon' is about the most interesting track on the first disc, but that's also on one of their studio albums, so a bit superfluous for this release. 'Thorn' is okay too. 'Glider' is just bloody awful. 'Off Your Face' is only okay. Next good track 'To Here Knows When', surprise surprise, is on 'Loveless'. Come on everyone, there's a reason why these tracks were left off the studio albums! Maybe I'm in a minority here, that's fine. Just don't get it, and lord help me I've tried.

God dammit I’m in love with this band! Everything they’ve ever done is just so cool and unique!

Also, if you’re finding this “insipid and uninspiring” try starting at “Soon”. That’s when it really gets good

Get this album for Off Your Face Alone. The best song they ever made, no doubt.
