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 5% of albums on This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

Este álbum no tiene un solo momento malo. Sin embargo, sus momentos excelsos opacan a sus momentos sencillamente buenos. Creo que esa irregularidad me impide calificar el conjunto como a una obra mestra.
Sus canciones, escuchadas separadamente son más interesantes.

EDITO: Todas las piezas de este álbum son buenas. En especial Finale, Celebration y Try to Make Yourself a Work of Art, pero el resto está por completo a la altura. Es de hecho una obra mestra. Si dentro de unos años sigue manteniendo toda su vigencia, valdrá oro.

so far it's contender for the best album of the 10's. It really does play, like a play. It unfolds each scene with its own theme. The bedroom aesthetic is authentic, original and makes the lo-fi art pop musique concrete more convincing. Favorite album of the 10's so far.

Evoking dream-pop atmospherics and an undercurrent of psychedelia, Holter expands upon the aesthetics of Julianna Barwick's 'The Magic Place', to create an album that in many ways is not unlike a postmodern amalgam of 'Desertshore', 'Lorca' and 'Rock Bottom'. The sound of piano and harpsicord allied to dense minimilistic electronic drones, techno beats and angelic vocals that seem to drift as if suspended from gravity, result in a unique cosmic-ambient work of extraordinary emotional depth and beauty.
