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)

In a parallel world, Slint were one of the most iconic bands of the 90's
Devastating album, but worth listening to for its sinister vibe and quite disturbing stories mixed with post-rock instrumentation.
Overrated album. Only the last track not bad. 👌🏻
This is a dark and introspective listen that maintains a gloomy atmosphere for the entire run time. The way they use their instrumentation to create this environment for us is genius. The drum work is amazing with the guitars on top adding this extra sinister feeling that drags us into the music. It is so easy to get completely lost in the soundscape on this record as the music has this beautiful luring sensation that makes you want to listen in closely and before you realise you are completely engulfed by their sound. The best example of this is about 4:30 into Good Morning, Captain with the guitar work being especially captivating beyond that point. Where the record shines is on the two longest songs which are Washer and the closing track. Both are absolute masterpieces and showcase everything that is loved about this record. Overall, what a sensational album this is from Slint with it possessing one of the greatest atmospheres on any album I have ever listened to making it a must experience for absolutely everyone.
This is not a bad record at all, very listenable. It does seem like an album that's more revered for it's innovation, influence, cult-following, and impact on subsequent artists, than it is for it's quality in and of itself.
Happy to have listened to it, will give it a couple more spins to see if it has something that will really click with me, and otherwise go for other artists that do the sound better when I am feeling this genre though.
There are times, while listening to this album, that my mind would wander and focus on the negative: sloppy production or an overly repetitive guitar part or a mistimed riff.
Then a new chord would rip or a vocal yell or something else like that and I realize: the band was just setting me up.
That one guitar sound in the middle of Good Morning, Captain…wow.
My favorite album of all time. Brooding, sinister, brilliant.
Spiderland leaves a presence in the room once it is played from front to back. Every track is filled with chilling storytelling and great musicianship.
This haunting album is a must listen for anybody who loves music.
