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 79.4/100, a mean average of 78.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

A pretty strong album, weighed down by some unfortunate forays into a dreary folk music vibe.

This album does have some fantastic songs but the quality is let down by some few poor cuts. The instrumentation stays consistent throughout and keeps the same feel and atmosphere. The quality does drop nearer the middle and you can tell when listening to certain tracks that they are filler. It is very progressive and experimental at times and I really enjoy the vocal delivery on the record. Definitely worth a listen if you enjoy this type of music as it is a very relaxing and easy flowing album.

If it wasn't for the long pauses I would've thought it's a one songs album. Good songs and regular songs, I liked it a lot but defo only keeping one or two songs from this onto my playlist.

Having heard great things about this album I was excited to check it out, unfortunately I came away disappointed. I just could not get into it .Maybe I need to have another listen or 2 ? I really like Shields and their 2017 release Painted Ruins & recommend both albums.

A great album that loses a bit of force at the middle, but goes back on top later with Ready, Able.
