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 78.2/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

It took me awhile to get into Kurt Vile's music, but I am sooo glad I finally did. This is my favorite of his albums, mostly because the sensational 10 minute bookends. Other highlights are Girl Called Alex, Never Run Away, and Pure Pain.
I usually love this genre of hazy, burnt-out folk rock, but I have yet to really get into it. If only it was shorter...
Superb set of songs.
Fantastic and I really need to hear more from this artist. Wow! MEZ
Another mellow album of pleasantness from Kurt Vile.
Love to see ambition like this from Kurt. Smoke Ring For My Halo had some great tracks, but he really swung for the fences on this effort.
At first I didn't like Kurt Vile because I thought he sounded too dry. But I kind of dug this album. At least track to track it's consistent at what it's trying to do. It's not an album I could love, but it's not bad compared to most.
One of the best of the past year
At times it is brilliant, but too inconsistent

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
