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 Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

Really nice record! Simple but beautifully orchestrated.
Great use of digital/electronic sounds.

Late night neon drenched pop with a hint of jazz lurking in the shadows. Atmospheric and beautiful, an underrated album perfect for that time just before dawn.

Walking down a quiet city street at night, feeling the cool air flow by as you watch the last lights from the surrounding apartment buildings flicker out, losing yourself in your own introspection, contemplating love, loss, and heartbreak before realizing you've been walking for hours, full circle, all the way back to your residence; the sun is just starting to come up. You walk inside, still heartbroken, but perhaps with a bit of serenity now about you. Things will be alright in the end.

Lovely mix of late Talk Talk and David Sylvian ambient pop.

A perfect moody, romantic record for a rainy Saturday evening.

When I first heard this, I thought it was kinda boring and underwhelming... with time it's definitely grown on me and is now one of my favorites.
