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 1% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

Indescribable. It feels so real while being so fantastical. Between the world of the real and world world of make believe; Vashti transports the mind on her journey north across the English countryside with such vivid detail and attention that listening is equal to that of being there with her. A shame it never enters the lexicon of greatest albums ever made, but its exclusivity makes it an even brighter gem because of it.

A PAGAN HOLIDAY

We’ve lost connection with the land. It’s brooks. It’s valleys. The wild grasses blowing in the wind. Which is a shame because their is real magic in the hillsides. Magic deep in the earth that was meant to mother us and keep us safe. Ground us against the stress of the world. The feel of the grass under your bare feet. Your toes wiggling into the mud of some tide pool. Lying down on a meadow and getting completely lost in the clouds and the deep blue of the sky. Hell, just running across a meadow with wild, unfettered abandon. All of this is powerful medicine. For your soul.

Vashti know this. She invites you back to the land. Her voice is joyous and free as it plays with the wind and sings to the birds. But, she doesn’t really sing. She skips. Like a little girl down the lane. Spreading joy & gaiety wherever she goes. Turning frowns into smiles on the old men stooped on the village benches down by the square. You know such children. You know their power. You can’t help but smile. And smiles believe it or not are magic.

For Vashti is the kindred spirit to the childlike Maria in The Sound of Music. Able to bring heartfelt joy and boundless energy just by singing on some random hillside meadow. She knows the power of being truly free to let loose. Getting completely lost in the songs and the music and just twirling around & around until you fall down. Laughing as you tumble in the hillside grasses. Leaves and grasses stuck to your hair and your clothes. A reckless abandonment that is cathartic. Curative. And spiritual. More spiritual than spending days in some convent. That the real power is outside. And just singing and smiling with all your heart can in & of itself bring about magic. And turn a boring, downcast life into one of childlike whimsy & wonder. Just ask Maria. Just ask Vashti.

Grade: A. Some of the most heartfelt & joyous folk music ever produced. Their is childlike wonder in these songs. An invitation to simpler times. When people were happy with less and content with the simple pleasures of life. A life unhurried. When you were not too busy to idly chat with your neighbor about a whole lot of nothing. A time when neighbors actually borrowed eggs & butter from each other when they ran out. When we were not afraid of each other. Of making eye contact. Of making connections. Because we knew the true value of time. Theirs a lot of playful power in these songs, and it unhurriedly skips and sings along all the way to number five.

One of the shortest, and possibly the sweetest thing I've ever heard.

This would accompany a lovely country walk, followed by a pub lunch perfectly. A typical British sunday, in fact.

This sounds like I'm working at a sweet quaint farm. I wake up to the birds chiming and the rooster cockle-doodling, and I skip along a vast field of daisies (daisies again, why does female folk remind me of daisies all the time?), and I'm happy as can be. I bask in the sun and Vashti and I decide to call it a night, we sit by our sweet little fireplace and sing each song on this album accompanied by a cute little piano and a ukulele. Aww, if only.
