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 mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

Another that could probably be a little shorter, but still a wonderful listen all the way thru. Just like Permutations though, I found myself tiring of the album about 3 or 4 tracks from the end. I am still getting used to what feels like a really center heavy production (ie, all the drums feel like they are panned right up the middle, making it feel kinda squashed and not very spacious). The effect is mostly just noticeable on headphones. However I am beginning to notice it less and less.

Also, my version on spotify sadly doesn't have easy muffin, the apparent highlight :(

Bricolage opens pretty simply. A neatly arranged slowly paced track based around a smooth as fuck jazz baseline. The neat and laid-back nature of stoney-street lets you know that Tobin is into jazz, and that he's just as happy to make use of cool-jazz and smooth jazz as he is to implement the intensity of hard bop and post-bop, but this hardly prepares you for what is to come. I guess this get classified as drum'n'bass with heavy influences from elsewehre, but with that influence coming from everywhere from nu-jazz to hip-hop to classical, Bricolage doesn't really function as a masterwork of melding together different genres so much as it does as a piece of music with its foundation laid in a plethora of genres but that amounts to something entirely unique form (and far greater than) any of the individual cogs from which it is composed. Easily sliding from a hypnotic cool-jazz melody to an erratic onrush of perfectly placed beats and noises, Bricolage seems to run across the mind of the listener, ravaging every synapse and almost immediately recreating the mental apparatus into something greater, just in time for it to repeat the process with an entirely different approach, and with and entirely different end result on the listener (though with the same lasting impact) as each previous time. At times, relaxing, romantic, energetic, smooth, frantic, organic, distorted, blah blah blah Bricolage is a symphony of paradoxes that not only flow into each perfectly, and with remarkable ease (defying whatever I used to think logic was). But as I said, this isn't an album made singular just for it's ability to make the juxtaposition of what one would think to be harshly opposing or just entirely unrelated elements seem completely natural, but for it's ability to take each of those individual elements and derive from them something peerless; something to which no accurate parallels can be drawn, and in the end, something that is just massive fun to listen to.

So yeah I sort of disagree with outlaw

When I first joined BEA, this album was on a total of 4 charts, and only two overall charts... one of which was mine

Needless to say I'm thrilled to see where it is now.
Tobin is a genius

For an electronic instrumental album, this is very good! This jazzy electronic music has caught the eye of many critics and has received critical acclaim. The songs sound great. "Easy Muffin" is famous for being the interlude song in Adult Swim commercials. I am trying to find the CD for this album (without Amazon or eBay) and it is impossible to find! Anyways, I high recommend giving this album a listen.
