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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 78.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

One really good song. "Jumpers." The rest is just thrash and noise. Corin Tucker can't sing. Can't sing at all.

Sicuramente, in mezzo a tanti "bimbo-minchia" che popolavano le scene di allora, chi dimostrava di avere maggiormente gli attributi erano proprio queste tre…

Is it just me or are SK super underrated on BEA? Really surprised to see The Woods is not even top 20 (or even top 30) for 2005. Eaaasily top 5 for me.

All S-K's music is a cut above the rest, but having The Woods as #1 album for them just isn't right. "Jumpers" and"Entertain"are fantastic rockers with the ladies in peak form. "Rollercoaster" and "Modern Girl" have engaging lyrics and are catchy toons too. The rest are decent tracks but don't draw me back. I miss the intertwined singing and twisting guitars and subtlety of the earlier albums even though Weiss sounds awesome on drums.

Garage rock was still alive in 2005?
Nevermind.
Remarkable, but not my kind of album
