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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

Surprisingly this , Low's debut album, is their number 1 ranked release on BEA . I love this band and I love Slow Core and I'm telling you with full confidence Lows best album is 'Things We Lost In The Fire' from 2001, its a much more mature ,assured and technical superior album than this one

That's not to say this is a bad album , but you can just tell its a band trying to find its feet . And quite frankly a couple of tracks here stink in "Lazy" (I never did like that fat , lazy good for nothing Sarah ) and cover closer "Sunshine" which ends things on a bummer

If your a fan by all means check this album out , other wise take my advice and jump straight to 2001's 'Things We Lost In The Fire '

Solitary confinement closes you off from the dangers of the outside, but once left alone it’s impossible to ignore the dangers of your own self.

This album is always there for me in times of need. Whether I'm having a bad day, my life is falling apart, or I'm just feeling sick and tired, I Could Live In Hope is always there. The unique yet quiet blend of guitar, drums and dreamy vocals always puts me in a trance. No other album makes me feel such longing for love, for another person, than this one. I feel that listening to this album with another person is one of the most intimate things that you could do. Nothing compares to this album when it comes down to emotions. An unbelievably underrated masterpiece.
