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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.2/100, a mean average of 70.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.8.

This is my favorite Switchfoot album. Best tracks: Stars, The Blues, Golden, Daisy, Shadow Proves the Sunshine. The songwriting is great. I'd say that Switchfoot began to outpace their heroes U2 with the release of this album.

This is a good album from Switchfoot. It's probably their darkest album and I like it. Daisy has to be one of their best songs ever. I'd place this album 1st or 2nd in the Switchfoot discography (I'm hesitating with Oh Gravity).

Some of the songwriting on here is absolutely great even if their lyrics are in this weird wanna-be spiritual/philosophical "we're not a christian band but actually all of our record sales come from the CCM market" so the lyrics oscillate between thoughtful and outright laughable.

"The blues" is probably the best song Jon Foreman has written, and I actually like the guitar work on "happy is a yuppie word" despite the fact that the song is titled "happy is a yuppie word" and contains the lyrics "happy is a yuppie word"

I listened to this a ton in middle/high school when I was only allowed christian music, and it is very interesting to see which songs hold up vs. which ones I roll my eyes at.

The Beautiful Letdown is good, but I always loved this one more.
