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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.2/100, a mean average of 79.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

An original and fine debut album. Play dead as an additional track on one version finishes this off nicely

Björk's debut, aptly titled Debut, is incredibly produced and executed. Her voice is great and she is not afraid to flaunt it. The only thing I think this albums suffers from is lack of cohesion. Lots of interesting ideas in every song (trip hop, world, electronica, house, jazz), but they never seem to connect fully. But Debut's shortcomings are far outweighed by its strengths.

a stunning introduction to Bjork containing some well-known classics - later albums and songs are more celebrated and rightly so, but this holds a special place in the heart

A bit too much dance for me, but Venus As a Boy, Come To Me and Violently Happy are great. On my album there is another track, 'Play Dead', which I really like. Not sure why it's not shown above.

a bright and danceable debut ! sure, it's not intellectually *deep* and *profound*, or sonically adventurous like her later works , but it doesn't have to be. i'm glad this record has fared really well on this site

Not as many memorable or distinct songs as the average Bjork album (even though that's saying a lot), but this album deserves to be celebrated for it's mesmerizing and forward-thinking production, as well as Bjork's outstanding and interesting vocal delivery.

Most magical and inspired album. Being Bjork in 1993 must have been a wonderful place to be.
