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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Nothing beats listening to this album snugly in a cozy bedroom as waves of melancholy and the deepest sense of disappointment wash over your reclusive husk

Sadness becomes music in this truly emotional album by Red House Painters: they managed to take inspiration from previous works by other great slo core bands, such as Talk Talk or Slint and converge their influences in a way that touches the heart and soul.

the first time i tried listening to this album (at a record store listening station), i gave up after a couple minutes of the first track, "24". but a few years later i gave it a proper full-disc listen and it really won me over. it's easy to see why Ivo Watts-Russell was so taken with the band's demos that he chose to release them in only slightly reworked form on this album.

There’s a sense of accomplishment in slowly suffering to create something of value.
