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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.9/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Feel Happiness and Blood Promise are surely among the best live tracks of the 20th century. Absolutely spectacular.

Sometimes I think the first disc of this live album is the best of Swans' post-rock styled releases. It sounds like a rawer version of the Soundtracks for the Blind sound. Feel Happiness brilliantly transforms from noise jam to heartbreaking lullaby, Jarboe gives a disturbing vocal performance in I Crawled, Blood Promise gets extended as a post-rock crescendo....

The seconds disc is largely just Soundtracks for the BLind songs with lower sound quality, but the heavy version of All Lined Up and the Jarboe ballad Lavender are fantastic.
