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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Considered a classic, Songs About Fucking certain contains a half hour of noisy madness. I think I may need a few more listen in the future to understand more of this band since they are a well known act in the noise rock community. But I think this this album is cool to listen if you wanna listen to something that is literally noisy (in a good way)...

I think this could be an amazing album if it wasn't noise rock... meaning the mix/choice of tone vs a bit more clarity. It's still pretty rad and I suppose it's on purpose, but some of it I think would be much more enjoyable if mixed better/not so muffled on the tone.

Also I wonder if this was an ep or shorter album if I'd like it more... just can't do 13 songs of this style.

The A side of this album might be the most perfect cacophony of noise rock ever created.

Brilliant album, but I could do without the inadequate mixing of the cd version due to Albini's hatred of the format. Steve Albini, you are wrong - this is the digital age.
