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 This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

I first saw Kishi Bashi the thirty-fifth and final summer that downtown Asheville, North Carolina, held its annual free concert series called Bele Chere. Most of the people I know in Asheville weren't sad to see it go, as it made getting around the city pretty inconvenient, but I loved all the free music and street performers and other weirdness that came along with it. It also have me the opportunity to see Kishi Bashi live, which was a genuinely affecting and beautiful virtuoso performance. He's an incredible violinist who uses looping technology to amazing effect onstage. His songs all seem to have bizarre titles, but they don't come off nearly so weird when he performs them live, instead settling into some gorgeously entrancing grooves and harmonies. Lighght isn't quite as consistent as its predecessor, but it's a very fine album that deserves a place near the top of 2014's list of best albums.

Agreed. Mr. Steak is so disappointing. Why is it here?

Still a great album, but when compared to 151a, where every song was phenomenal and unique to now a collection of songs that are somewhat hit or miss, it's slightly disappointing.
Best songs: Q&A, Carry On Phenomenon, Lucid Dream
Worst: Mr. Steak

Why is he talking about booty shakes all of a sudden.

Anyway, production is outstanding. Bit more on the pop side than his last release.
