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 81.5/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

A nice rock record with a minimalist approach.
This is an interesting album for me as I don’t think that the songs here are necessarily PJ’s finest, the title track though is a great one,. Having said that, because i love the overall feel and mood of the album it’s one of my favourites of hers.
An album where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Love it to death.
This record isn't as strong as some of her other releases with there being a decent bit of filler on here but there are still some fantastic songs that are absolute classics of hers. The three tracks that really stand out for me are the title track, Long Snake Moan and Down By The Water. These three are brilliantly written songs that fit the mood and style of the record perfectly. They feel atmospheric and bluesy which gives her music a darker, moodier twist that I wasn't expecting on this release. However, a couple of the cuts let this album down for me with one of them being I Think I'm A Mother which feels extremely slow and always drags me out of the atmosphere. I feel like every time I get proper into the music it is interrupted by a weaker moment or by an average track which makes it feel quite incohesive in my opinion. Overall, there are some classic PJ Harvey moments on here which makes it well worth a listen but it falls short of her better work for me.
A pretty brilliant mix of Nick Cave/Mark Lanegan style ballads and some weirdo slacker rock type numbers. The latter of which I'm always a sucker for, not to say the other songs aren't great, she puts her own spin on it and it's great.
When this album first came out in 1995 I was all over it like a rash but pretty much dismissed it out of simple music snobbery preferring the “Old Stuff” over the “New Stuff”
I now know I was as Fonzie would say Wr Wr Wr Wong
This album is as good as anything Polly Jean has released ever
Her best album in my opinion. It is also her heaviest and darkest, and she never fully returned to this sound again with only a few exceptions. Probably the most electric and interesting female artist in the past 25 years if you ask me, but I understand she isn't for everyone, and a few of these songs, while they are all amazing, do go on just a wee bit too long.
Grande obra da artista que nos transporta para os anos 90's sufocante, paranóia tecnológica e na batida. Excelente!
Her best, very dark, very atmospheric, great voice
Atmosphere is fantastic- total 90s techie. The only issue? The songs are repetitive and consequently feel lengthy, and are not much more than mood music.
Very tribal music. Dark, hypnotic, always foreseeing the shade of doom on the horizon but never blatantly revealing the horror itself. I honestly can't name a single weak cut on the record (maybe "I Think I'm a Mother", but I don't want to put that one down), and the musicianship is uniformly good. Harvey's vocals in particular are at their best: I've never heard a woman sound this menacing in my life. Great work. A top 5 album of 1995.
Requires being in a very specific mood to properly enjoy, though. That's the only bad thing I can think about it.
