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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.1/100, a mean average of 81.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Four really good songs. The rest are alright, I like the mood.
Humble beginnings before the electronic experimentation. It shows just how much talent was there to utilise and harness. Stunning album.

A very emotional and moving album that is a great record to chill to and be engulfed by the music. The lyrics are wonderfully written and allow us to explore their words deeper. They are beautifully sung as well making for a delicate combination which is so pleasing to the ear. The instrumental is graceful but it also has a tinge of harshness when it needs to be such as on Creature Fear which I think is one of the most under appreciated songs on the album. This makes for a relaxing but engaging listen. The album just feels so wholesome and it is so easy to get lost in the music which I love. Instrumentally, it matches the vocal making a cohesive experience and the guitar is fantastic throughout especially on the closing track. Overall, a brilliant album that has no weak tracks and is perfect to stick on if you are ever feeling introspective.
Pretty good, but if we’re being honest…”Skinny Love” carries a ton of water for this record.
AMO EL FOLK!!! Gracias Justin Vernon!! Skinny Love siempre será tu mayor obra maestra y también me gustan demasiado tus collabs con Kanye.
I absolutely adore this album. It's so ethereal and relaxing.
This is a really great example of poetry in motion. Beautifully written and performed.
La verdad no me esperaba esto. Creía que iba a ser un disco aburrido y me he encontrado con una maravilla. Sin destacar grandes canciones (la mejor Skinny Love) pero que en conjunto suena fenomenal.
De uma delicadeza e dedicação ímpar!
