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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 74.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

Years after its release, I have found what I initially considered to be merely a "good" album, is actually one of the best albums. The vibrant energy juxtaposed to the sometimes antithetical lyrics, the snarky teen angst, the clever wordplay. Every line in every song is worth repeating in your head and mulling over. I can't imagine another album like this.

You! Me! Dancing! Is a really fun track. There's a lot of energy in this album as well. Sounds much older than it is despite it being fairly standard indie pop. Really shows how far ahead of its time it was.

This album rules! It's just full of energy and borrows from many different genres: pop, punk and indie. Great stuff! After listening to it, I wasn't the least bit surprised to find that Pitchfork praised the hell out of the album when it came out.

Fantastic. Feels like they're ready to take on anything and pulverize anybody who stands in their way. One of the most exciting debuts in recent memory
