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 BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.5/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

Sunbather is a finely crafted table. Dream House, Vertigo and The Pecan Tree function as legs that hold the album up (with Dream House comprised of two legs). The title track is the support apparatus underneath the middle of the table. Windows, Irresistible and Please Remember are various flavors of cuisine on the table which cater to every listener’s preference. All in all, a well-rounded, rewarding listen.

I remember when this came out and everybody was freaking out about it. Now I know why, what a great experience from beginning to end

Really good album. Shoegazer with black metal, nice combo.

They fill a gap. You hit the nail on the head there; that’s exactly how I feel about this album: though I’ve never heard this combination of genres, I’ve heard every part of it. I love the drums. One thing I’ve always appreciated the hell out of metal is that they are one of few genres that play with rhythm (sometimes I think a lot of people forget that rhythm is an aspect to music at all). The guitars on this project don’t really follow this trend though (they don’t even have a hint of swing to it), which is really a missed opportunity and makes me question their validity as shoegazing. I like that they put the vocals in the background with the rest of the music, not because “muhhh screamo is dumb”, but because they seem to realize that vocals are as important to music as any part.

It tends to get a bit repetitive and the sound gets old fast over the course of the album. And it’s not a bad thing they decided not to switch up the sound, but it kinda proves this sound doesn’t have the replayability to fill an album, rather an EP (which is still better than most artists do, es-fucking-specially in rock these days).

Vertigo! Dream House! Tracks that gives me goosebums. Music I have longed for all my life, without knowing it. Black metal caring for music more than style. The massive soundwall of Kamasi Washington and the free floating beautiful melodies of Radiohead or maybe rather Sigur Ros. Deafheaven fills a gap. Hope for many intelligent musicmakers to get salvation & creational urge hearing this
