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 82.1/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

Took everything from the first two albums and turned the ornate instrumentation up to 11. Great flow, great sound, amazing songwriting.
Modern Vampires feels like the album that the band have been working towards. What has been created is evidence that indie and guitar based music can still create something artistic and fresh. The ambition pays off and it marks the end of a wonderful trilogy for the band.
A solid album & a breathe of fresh air in the music universe.

I love the sound of this record. Melodic and rhythmic, but reminiscent of being in a giant closet. Sounds are sometimes distorted or echoing. The drums in particular sound like they’re hit crisply but recorded under water. It works.
As another commenter wrote, the lyrics are literate. Charming wordplay married with thoughtful considerations of the mortal and immortal. A couple songs drag, particularly in the back half of the record, but this is great listening.
Irretocável! Uma coisinha boa de Paul Simon.
No me dice mucho
Starts off a bit generic sounding, but they really switch it up on tracks 3-6. Overall, pretty great album, aside from the interminable hell that is Ya Hey.
