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 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.6/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.0.

The entire record is wrapped in a unique atmosphere. Cold, sensual and emotional.

Engravings has a fantastic atmosphere and the sounds keep it interesting the whole way through. The songwriting sort of loses me occasionally though. Certain parts do feel a bit repetitive and I'd prefer if the melodies had more direction. The closing track is absolutely stunning and I just wish the other tracks held up as well in comparison. Still, I enjoyed the whole thing quite a bit and definitely recommend giving it a listen.
