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 72.3/100, a mean average of 70.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

I've listened to this album more than any other since its release in 2013. It's a criminally underrated record, though I understand that not all listeners will identify with it as much as I do. It's the only record I've ever heard that attempts to capture--and does so brilliantly--what it was like to grow up in rural New England in the eighties. Thank you, Will Sheff, for telling the story of my childhood, and doing it with such grace, humor, and sensitivity. "Down Down the Deep River" is the obvious highlight here, but it's just one of several outstanding tracks.

Down the Deep River is a brilliant song. Honestly, that song alone is worth giving the album a shot.

Okkervil River's version of the Suburbs, and only fails by virtue of it being 2nd. Amazing record nonetheless.
