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 17% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

A return to form after the slight disappointment of, smother. This time it's based on electro pop and is closer to, two dancers, than any of their other releases. I'm glad they moved on from the more restrained sounds of their last record. My only reservation is that almost every band makes the 'inevitable' electronic album when they hit a bit of an artistic wall. It will be interesting to see where they go next.

I'm glad I came back to this album as I had previously under-rated it. Quality throughout and Wanderlust is superb

I like this far more than their previous release, Smother, which I found to be rather boring and mediocre. This one on the other hand beholds some nice melodies and harmonies and a cool synthy and light vibe to it.
