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 13% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.4/100, a mean average of 74.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

'The Three E.P.'s' is a compilation album of the first three releases by The Beta Band, comprising the EPs:

(1) Champion Versions 1997
(2) The Patty Patty Sound 1998
(3) Los Amigos del Beta Bandidos 1998

Recalling loving The Beta Band from when these EP's first came out I recently went back and re-listened to this album and its aged really well sounding as cool and relevant today as it did 20 years ago

I was struck with how much this material reminded me of Alt-J in terms of song structure and harmony's - I've realised my love of Alt-J probably began with my love of The Beta Band

Simply awesome

After The Fall, no other band has ever given me so many great songs. This "collection" is something every single person should hear.

some of my favourite EPs, coincidentally all three seem to work really well as an album.

It's interesting how 3 separate EPs flow together so well.

It's sad that The Beta Band never got their full due. So underrated. Dry the Rain is such a great song.
