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 76.4/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

A fine and very deeply cut music performed soulfully,
Great example of how a single mic can catch magic in the room in a way that polished production often can't.
Arguably the first slowcore album, I love the blend of downcast indie rock and country. I kind of wish this is what all of that sad, classic country stuff sounded like. Everyone here is talking about the cover of "Sweet Jane," which is great but cuts out the best of Reed's cheeky lyrics, and no one is talking about the cover of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" which is very easily better than the original.
A toned, inspired and beautiful album
Mind blowing when it was released because there just wasn't anything like it out there. No frills, just beautiful vocals backed by an excellent band. Their version of "Sweet Jane" is amazing.
Morose, one paced alt country lp with a songstress with definite vocal range issues. A catatonic version of Sweet Jane bought them a considerable audience in North America bit I'm feeling somewhat dissapointed by this one.
Recorded with the band circled around a single microphone in Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity, this album's intimacy and immediacy reflects the surroundings in which it was made. The result is a a languid, dreamy, haunting listening experience. The band's sound centers on the custard-smooth voice of Margo Timmins, but there is both great songwriting here and some excellent selections of covers. Their version of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane" is one of the best interpretations of that song, and Michael Timmins' "Postcard Blues" is one of the album's many highlights.
A hauntingly beautiful album, full of superb intimate tracks, including a lovely take on Lou Reed's, sweet Jane. Good record.
Damn is this a good solid album.
Pre-dates the whole alt-country movement. Pioneering stuff from the Canadian siblings.
