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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.5.

As a fan of The Cardigans it was the song "Your Love Alone Is Not Enough" that really brought me on the track of the band The Manic Streeet Preachers. The song from the album "Send Away the Tigers" provides for me everything I love about the Cardigans - a good catchy melody, a solid rock arrangement and strong vocals - here both from Nina Persson and James Dean Bradfield.

This 2 CD release features the group's singles released between 1990 and 2011 and is a clear testimony that the group's music has evolved and changed several times along the way.

The earliest tracks from the time when the group was still a quartet - guitarist and songwriter Richard Edwards disappeared mysteriously in 1995 - are mostly simple rocksongs wrapped in a punk expression, with lyrics that often have messages at heart. However, even from the early albums also sensitive and melodic songs that may in fact turn out as the most durable can be found. I am thinking of "Motorcycle Emptiness" and "Little Baby Nothing" from the first album. The four singles from second album "Gold Against The Soul" actually all belong to this category - with "Life Becoming a Landslide" as the standout.

The highly acclaimed and dark third album "The Holy Bible" also includes the fine "She is Suffering".

After these albums the group sought more towards a more mainstream rocksound where the listeners were less challenged. However, there were still great singles from all albums among which I personally would highlight tracks like "Tsunami" and "Ocean Spray".

Although the group might periodically have been a slightly burnt out and a little short of new of ideas, the singles from their latest album show and band that is still capeable of coming up with new great rock songs.

As the title "National Treasures - The Complete Singles" shows the focus is solely on the group's singles (A-sides), which means that the overall fine album "Journal For Plague Lovers" from 2009 with surviving lyrics by Richard Edwards is not at all represented. Just too bad for tracks like "Jackie Collins", "This Joke Sport Severed" and "William's Last Words" would have done well in this otherwise fine context..

Among the non abum tracks, it is especially "Suicide is Painless" from 1992 that stands out.
