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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Not bad. Real dark work here. Not as memorable as 1 or 2, but solid.

My favourite Eno instrumental album.
Yes, a bit unsettling in parts.
Two of the tracks are used in Salad Fingers.
Enough said.

Yeah as the comment below says, this is much better than the dull airports album. This is nice.

There are some fucked up perverts who prefer ambient 1 to this. Weird, I know.

This music treads an uneasy path between sublime and unsettling. Genuinely makes you feel like you are in all sorts of different outdoor terrains. Alone. Excerpts were used in Scorsese's Shutter Island and that gloriously grisly YouTube cartoon, Salad Fingers.

I read about some guy who, on a hot summers night, would play this on an expensive sound system in his living room and open the doors onto his garden and the crickets would all swarm around the patio chirping in harmony with it.
