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 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.7/100, a mean average of 75.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

Great return to form after a few average albums since their self titled release in 2006. As another reviewer mentioned, the two singles although not bad, turned out to be the weaker songs on the album the rest is brilliant!

Dark Matter sees Pearl Jam rekindle energy that most fans were starting to doubt they could offer. The band hasn’t sounded this focused since the turn of the century and is their best effort since the greatly under-appreciated Binaural. Dark Matter sounds like what you would expect from a Pearl Jam album, but also surprises just enough to keep you intrigued. In ways it is a summary of the many sounds the band has perfected over the years but still has more to give. The only criticism is the production, particularly of the drum sounds which are overly compressed and ‘boomy’ at times. Ed also has a tendency to add too many lyrics particularly on songs like React, Respond. Nonetheless, the agency that made Pearl Jam a stand out of the 90s is present and sounding as good as any 60 year olds could.

I had low expectations after Dark Matter and Running. Turns out those are the worst tracks on the album. The rest is possibly their best material since Riot Act

How I missed her! I was so in love. Then she changed, I didn't understand her anymore. Was it me? Was I unable to deal with her emancipation? But now she's back! And she's never been more beautiful! Great album! Great band!
