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 Bayesian average rating of 73.4/100, a mean average of 71.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

really wish this album had made more of a wave since it was released since it's just so, so good, but an obscurely popular music video off a strong album is more than most artists get in their lifetime.

also really wish the re-issue songs were on the original album so I could give them the 100/100 they deserve though

The re-issue is much better, Mountain Sound & Slow And Steady are essential.

Great record, the international one is the one I listened and it pleased me. Glad to see it high on the overall rank.

Good potential and very enjoyable but inconsistent. Still Dirty Paws has certainly become one of my favorite songs.

Don't deny 'Little Talks' is one of the greats of the year. It's like a childish dream every push of the repeat button. Simple times as a song. I'm very pleased they actually put the time to create some great songs to put around it.

Some great songs and the rest fillers. Not a bad album but hope to see more consistancy on there next offering.
