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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.7/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

Second album I've heard from Vampire Weekend and it's clear this band ain't my thing, didn't enjoy either record. I just don't find them to be particularly interesting.

Best song: "I Stand Corrected"

What a great way to start a music career for a band. My only is this album solid front to back, but it allows Vampire Weekend some wiggle room to explore a variety of genres without doing 180s. The world music vibe with the alt-Rock core is a very suitable home for them! Koenig’s lyrics and Rostam’s production are big highlights for their first couple albums.

This album in indie gold. The melodies on this album are masterclass. The mixes are great, and the beats are infectious. I was obsessed with the beat in Mansard Roof for weeks, I still have fun slapping it out with my hands.

After disliking Father of the Bride I came here to see what the fuzz for this band was all about and I have to say I stand corrected, pun intended. I'm pleasantly surprised, this is a pretty good album (7/10). The first half is full of great cheerful songs. I really love the riff on Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa. The second half doesn't really keep up with the quality of the first but it's still good.

Always been put off these because they always had a bit of a cringe factor for me. Listen with an open mind though and there's plenty to enjoy. Those Graceland comparisons are obvious but also very lazy.
