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 all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.5/100, a mean average of 78.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.1.

Già dalle prime note dell'iniziale "Homecoming queen" si capisce che Mark Linkous non era un personaggio allegro ma piuttosto inquieto, tormentato. E la musica dei suoi Sparklehorse ( praticamente un alias… ) è tutta così: malinconica, spesso struggente, a tratti fisica ma comunque sempre contenuta, che fa più rumore con i silenzi che con le note. In questo album del 1995 ci sono almeno tre grandi canzoni ( quella già citata, "Weird sisters" e "Rainmaker" ), ma tutto il disco è degno di rappresentare quel decennio…

Sad and intense.
Beautiful songs between acoustic, low-fi and indie rock.
A must-have album of the '90s

Incredible lo-fi production, mixed with some heartbreaking tales. It gets better and better as you listen to it.

For me, Good Morning Spider was powerful and immediate. Not so with this album. It took a while before I realized how incredible the record actually is. But now that I love it, (and I really, truly, absolutely LOVE it) I can say with confidence that it's on par with his other masterpiece.

For any two albums by the same band to reach my top 20, they have to be an incredibly creative and talented group, approaching genius.

This is the work of a solo artist.

The opening lyrics are one of the most beautiful lyrics I've ever heard.

I can't remember the last time I gave an album a 90 on first listen. I think the last time was Blue, which ended up as my number 1 album.

This is just incredible songwriting, the lo-fi aspect serves to enhance the emotions presented in the words and the music and isn't there just for the sake of it, which is often the case. At the beginning I was thinking "this is really nice, but I wish it was a little louder and more involved." And then that happened! There's tons of variety here, cool filler tracks, louder alternative rock-ish tracks and soft folkier tracks. It's got everything I could every want from an album.
