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 has a mean average rating of 72.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 72.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

I don't quite know why, but I was taken aback by this album and just how great it is; perhaps it's because it was the first time I listened to the shoegaze genre. Cohesive, dreamy and really cool, the record zips on by and makes you want to play it again straight after it's finished.

I guess this album fills the position that Real Estate's Days occupied last year. You know, it's all dreamy and jangly, and quite inoffensive, which means that P4k and subsequently the indie crowd will eat it up. And me? Well, I love dream pop.. So yeah, I like this. I don't think it's quite as good as Days though, that one was way more chill, and put me into some... "special place". But this is good.. Just beware, if you're not into this music and somehow don't love the jangly guitar sounds that form the beautiful wall of noise, you'll probably find this way too bland to enjoy.

Anyway, my favs: How Long Have You Known, Human

Excellent debut continuing the current trend for all things shoegaze albeit with some motorik krautrock thrown into the mix. DIIV's reverb heavy dream-pop is nonetheless engaging at times often reminescent of Swedish nu-gazers The Radio Dept.

I can feel some BSS in the instrumental sections, but there are so many instrumental sections that aren't fully compelling, and the vocals are indistinguishable and so tucked back into the mix that i don't foresee (forehear?) listening to this again. Good potential though.
