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 24% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

From babyBlueSedan 07/07/2019 21:05
This is a really interesting album - I like how it plays around with different tones and sounds in a way that almost sounds like noise rock filtered through a post-punk lens. Unfortunately, all the chaos results in very few songs that work, and the ones that are interesting outstay their welcome long after their only trick was revealed. It's telling that my favorite things here are the opener and closer. The piano on the closer especially sounds great, and while it also lacks variety it succeeds in doing what it's supposed to do: close the album. I wish the ideas were reigned in a bit on the rest because a slightly more organized version of this would be just fantastic.

Very energetic post-punk. Huge influence on bands like Pavement.
