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 4% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

I just heard this for the first time tonight, and I also listened to it the third time tonight, this is so mesmeryizing, and so quirky and ALIVE! feels something so childish and powerful. It's like traveling old and beautiful and sparse memories of your childhood with all that cherrish colour, deleted and recovered in cryptographic movies. fantastic stuff. I don't know what else to write but that this has taken me to a nostalgic and mystical escapism I haven't visited in quite a while.

A rather pleasant sound goes throughout. Could see it growing on me after another week. Things seem to happen and people seem to go. Like a car moving but the wheels are not turning. Bizarre. Out there. Most importantly, this feels comfortable.

These guys have really created a genre all to themselves. I don't even know what to make of most of it. But it remains as one of my favorite albums ever

The title track is honestly one of the best songs I've ever heard. Fantastic album to go along with it, but I could listen to that song forever.
