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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.7/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

This is classic Godspeed but in a much more accessible form with it being considerably shorter than their other projects. Due to this the record has absolutely no filler on it, as there is only 2 tracks, and both songs are packed full of outstanding quality. The way they build their songs is mesmerising to be able to experience as they take you on this peaceful journey at the start which slowly starts to become more intense until it reaches breaking point and then it feels like you have stumbled across an apocalypse. You can vividly picture exactly what they are trying to convey to you as well with just the use of their instruments which is such an impressive feat to accomplish. They trap you in this wall of noise that feels like it is constantly closing in and it crumbles just as it is about to reach you and then they start it all over again. Instrumentally, it is a musical marvel and you can only sit back in awe at the genius that is being displayed to u. From the violins to the percussion to the guitars, it is just something extraordinary that completely has a life of its own and it feels so grand. Overall, this is one of the most unique groups to ever create music and this record, amongst a few others, sets them apart from their competition in the genre and from their competition with most artists in general.

Like many not so popular albums, this suffers from the average rating vs overall rating syndrome. Tracks are rated 92 and 89, overall rating is 84?

Easily the best project they ever did, 28 minutes of pure greatness without a single dull moment.

This should be ranked way higher.

The greatest thing they ever did. If I included EPs on my charts this would have been way up high.

This album is 30 minutes of pure, raw emotion. There is not a single moment in it that does not fully grab my attention

Some of the band's best material brought down only a little due to the sampling choice.
