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 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.7.

Incredibly well done experimental/avant-garde/post-punk(?) record. This is what I imagine Sun City Girls wishes they sounded like.

Unconventional and refuses to adhere to any one genre. This album is haunted and I love it.

Favorite tracks: Paper Hats, Makeshift Swahili, A New Kind of Water

Great album all the way through. I'm not usually a fan of really artsy experimental stuff, but this is just amazing. I really enjoy the lyrics, anti-consumerist political commentary without being overbearing. Everything on here sounds interesting and enjoyable while still pushing boundaries. Even without considering its notable influence on other alternative bands, this album is an absolute classic.

Experimental, clever, fresh, unpredictable and interesting.
the guitars sound haunting and the drums works wonders.
oh, and it's criminally underrated.

One of the most haunting rock albums ever recorded. Absolutely different that the post punk scene was creating at that time. Experimental, beautiful and gives u a lot to think about. Makeshift Swahili must be one of the best rock songs ive ever heared.
