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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.6/100, a mean average of 81.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

This album brings me back to a time where people lived in the wilderness and chopped wood and used stoves to heat their houses. It puts me fireside in the middle of pines. Really soothing and atmospheric. Beautiful.

White Winter Hymnal is an absolutely beautiful song and the best song on the album. The rest is really good.

This albums cover has a really interesting back story

The image is of a 1559 dutch painting called Netherlandish Proverbs by Pieter Bruegel which features over 100 Dutch idioms . Look closely and you can see a man "banging his head against a wall" , a man "throwing his money away" etc

So much going on that isn't immediately apparent

This is folk done well. Folk needs to be poetic, harmonious,and above all have a musicianship that can transcend the lyric when there is nothing more that can be said by the poet. Fleet Foxes achieve this and then some. The composition of their work is evolving with their newer releases but this album was just such an incredibly complete set of catchy tunes and enigmatic lyrics and really came along just when I needed something to stretch beyond my discovery of the more mellow Iron and Wine style of folk.

Just got round to hearing this in 2018 following a recommendation from a friend. Initially sceptical but also listened to the excellent Bon Iver recently. After a couple of listens I am loving it - fairly disliked White Winter Hymnal on first listen but now find it superb.
Great harmonies and delicate sound with a nod to the Beach Boys on occasion

Great album, there is not a bad song in here and it stands alright as an ensemble. 8.6/10.
