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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

De los albumes de estudio de Portishead, elegería este, pero debo advertir que es un album denso, bastante denso, con un sonido oscuro, pero bello, suena sumamente actual a pesar de los años que han pasado desde que vio la luz (1997). Portishead tiene la gracia que no hay una banda que suena "similar" y eso los hace únicos. En este album vuelcan toda su impronta de Trip-Hop para deleitarnos con 11 canciones únicas en 50 minutos de genialidad sonora!

It's a testament to how great this band is if this is their "worst" album

One of the most haunting albums I've come across. There's really nothing I can think of that has this very specific sound. It's a dark and lovely trip.

This my first listen to this album - I've heard a handful of the songs already from their live NYC album, many of which I really like.

A dark and delicious successor to "Dummy", reminiscent of the music featured in David Lynch's films. Consistently great throughout.

Uno de esos álbumes que nunca te cansas de escuchar. De hecho, su hipnótico sonido crece más en ti cada vez que lo pones. Me rindo.

Not as great as, dummy, but still a very good album by a band who just haven't released enough albums. Just think of all the greatness we're missing out on. Still, I'm thankful for the three we do have.

This album sounds so eerie and eccentric that I find the tracks highly consistent to each other and congruous with the overall mood. In this regard, it's better than their first one imo, which is why I think of this as their best album. I particularly like the weird accent applied in 'Humming', for it's just so befitting to and accentuating the gothic, dark vibe. On the other hand it might be too much of a melancholic downer, thus quite averse to the taste of many people. Then again I appreciate its unencumbered willingness to embrace the true darkness.

Really good, but a bit too comfortable with itself for me to really love it.
