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 13% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.6/100, a mean average of 74.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

Though Something About Airplanes is an excellent record, it is a document of a band very much still figuring things out. They're trying different techniques and finding moods that suit them. We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes is a collection of songs preoccupied with transition--moving out of fraught relationships, moving into crummy apartments, moving away grander ambitions. And yet, it is grounded and confident as to make a night-and-day difference between this album and its predecessor. Death Cab is largely unconcerned with crafting a pristine-sounding set of songs. Rather, We Have the Facts embraces its limitations, sounding as though they're in the room with you, and on tracks like "The Employment Pages," "405," and "Little Fury Bugs," you feel as though there's no one else for miles around. There's something about that degree of intimacy, which too few artists even attempt, that furthers the familiarity of these songs and stories. It suggests an ennui defined by the fits and starts of young adulthood. Everything is over before it begins, and yet, we persist. Therein lies the perverse optimism of We Have the Facts. Our landlords can't provide livable spaces, old flames grow beyond us to our jealousy, and we go a lot of places but never seem to get anywhere. But that's just part of the deal. Although it's hard to know when you're in the thick of it, hard times and punishing liminal stages don't last forever. You take your frustration and you make it into one of the finest, most enduring indie rock records, and my personal favorite album of all time.
I never realized how derivative of Modest Mouse these guys are. They pull it off most of the time.
This is the album that introduced me to Death Cab For Cutie and will always have a special place in my heart.
Pre label Death Cab at it's best, easy-going and melancholic
This is my favorite album. I have been listening to it for many years now and I never want to skip a single song on this album. Death Cab For Cutie is my favorite band and this was the album that started it. I wish they did more songs from this album in their live shows.
With the users on this website, I'm surprised this isn't as highly regarded as Transatlanticism or Plans. While this album doesn't have the exact sound of the Death Cab For Cutie albums that would follow, one could argue this is their best album. The concept behind the album also makes it so much better.
ps. This is a great album to fall asleep to but I mean it in the best possible way.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
A masterpiece that many people fail to ever realize as an album.
This is easily one of the most underrated albums ever. Few of anyone ever realizes just how incredible this album is. It's rich with great guitar melodies, strong songwriting, Ben Gibbard's cryptic, yet addictive lyrics, and the kind of focus on concept that hasn't really been seen since, even if Transatlanticism is a better album over all.
