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 83.8/100, a mean average of 82.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

To me this album seems a bit bloated and filled with tracks that go nowhere... but when they do, oh my God, this is so beautiful.

Very happy to have found this one on my Bestever journey. Kinda sucks that I didn’t get to hear it when it came out as I’m sure it would be a soundtrack album to a great period in my life.

The album starts at a godly level with the first 3 tracks - these three songs are always with me. The album as a whole is fantastic, and i find very few albums who start so strong

This album's a grower, not a shower. It's taking me over a dozen listens, but now I think it's starting to click.

I’m so grateful this album exists. I stumbled upon this album digging though the Olympia scene. A treasure for sure. Phil’s writing has kept me engaged.

How is it even possible that this makes me feel so sad yet so happy at the same time?

Some great indie folk songs. The low fidelity of the recording really helps to add to the intimacy of this record.

One of the most intimate albums I've ever heard, with Phil Elvrum's lyrics pointing the listener to both the gritty, and the beautiful on a journey as experimental and mind-blowing as anything I've listened to before or since. A true masterpiece.
