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 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 15.9.

Отличный альбом. Очень много классных мелодий, гармоний. Отличные ударные и бас-партии также радуют на альбоме. Шикарный дебют группы

Really good, especially for a debut record. It’s like listening to underground punk, with some synth and harpsichord thrown in, for a pinch of musical diversity.

Enjoyable listen. Nothing really comes close to A-Punk though.

This is just a joy to listen to, poppy (and preppy), uplifting and beautifully executed.

I can't imagine why someone would dislike this album, but at the same time I can't imagine why someone would love it. It's uplifting, catchy, enjoyable, can provide lots of fun, but it's instantly forgettable. Whenever I come back to it - not very often - it feels like a first listen, no part of it sticks with me after it's over.

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.
