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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.3/100, a mean average of 81.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

The only EP that I consistently listen to. A real shame that NMH never followed up ITAOTS. If you enjoy their sound, i recommend you listen to Little Birds, the only single they released after their magnum opus.
Fav. tracks: Oh sister, Engine, A baby for Pree

Captures the same vibe and feel as Aeroplane. Oh Sister could be an extension of Oh Comely. Jeff Mangum is a ridiculously talented songwriter and these two albums - Aeroplane and Ferris Wheel - deserve to be ranked with any of the great Springsteen, Nas, or Tom Waits, in that regard.
