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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

JIGSAW PUZZLE

Finally! Someone loves The Cure and 80s college rock as much as me. Thank you, Jack Tatum, for this absolute gift of an album. One giant homage to the 80s college rock of my youth. Just like me, every guitar line, every bass line, every drum fill has become a part of Jack’s DNA . The strings from Morrissey’s first solo album, early JAMC vocal stylings, the bass of MBV. It’s all here. Like pieces of an elaborate jigsaw puzzle. Rearranged. Put back together to create something entirely new. A reimagining of 80s college rock by the ultimate fan.

But, just like me, it’s mostly about The Cure. The Cure’s shadow over 80s college rock is similar to Sabbath’s over metal/stoner rock. It always comes back to them. And Robert Smith is quietly, ( very, very quietly) one of the most influential guitarists of all time. His swirling, kaleidoscopic guitar licks are all over this album. And Robert Smith makes up the bulk of the pieces of this here jigsaw puzzle.

Grade: A+. There’s really only one question when it comes to this album. If it had actually come out in 1987 instead of 2012, would it be considered the best college rock albums of all time? Because this is 80s college rock perfected.

I’m a massive fan of 80s college rock. Let’s face it - it’s what I grew up on. It’s part of my DNA. And this is EASILY some of the best college rock this boy has ever heard. It captures that winsome, romantic spirit at the heart of so much of 80s New Wave. There was a ton of hope in that music. A naive, romantic innocence. And its so great to find that spirit so alive and well here. Intact. Inviolate. And I will be returning to its well often I have a feeling. Long live the 80s! Wink

Aside: This album also reminds me that I NEED to get back into the Pale Saints. I have a feeling that they’re a big influence on JackTatum as well, but I don’t know them well enough to be sure.

Not very creative sounding, but the songs on this are diverse and well written.

Wild Nothing is one of the most underrated bands in the business. I have loved all of their releases. This album in particular was one of my favorites for 2012.
