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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.2.

A great album that is almost a Muses and Belly collaboration as ‘Not Too Soon’ and ‘Honeychain’ would fit on any Belly release and this album would see the departure of Tanya Donnelly to form that band, those two songs don’t really fit on here as they are very mainstream pop especially Not Too Soon and the (step) sisters obviously went in different directions musically and we are very fortunate that they did as we got lots more great music!

A perpetual pirouetting prism of post-punk pop.

I really like this album, my favorite is "Honeychain"...I remember taking a road trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco through the Mojave desert north to Yosemite, then left to the ocean...I had this cassette playing and "Honeychain" seemed to fit perfectly with the mood of this trip.
