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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.7/100, a mean average of 70.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

As a longtime Liars fan, Mess just sounds like the natural evolution of the band. Following the wonderfully atmospheric WIXIW, they've returned to their more wildly absurdist roots while maintaining their adventure into electronics. It's not perfect, but it's good to see a band who's unafraid to take chances rather than just tread water.

Surprised by this album. A dark, yet powerful and unique sound. I think all the songs together strengthen each other, and work together perfectly for an album. No real standout single or anything, but this group has their sound mastered. Definitely one of the first consistent bodies of works so far this year.
