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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 73.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

Quite a good album for fans of The Antlers. I enjoyed it although it's hard to really appreciate it in it's own right when I'm constantly comparing it to the brilliance of 'Hospice'. This album will lose that battle 10 times out of 10. (Same with any of their other albums too)

Still a disappointment for me after repeated listens. It's a nice album as far as these things go, but a bit of variety wouldn't have gone amiss... Tracks are also too long. It's just a bit too boring for me.

In the clouds he freely floated above all that which once brought immense pain.
