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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.5/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

OK, but nothing that hasn't been done better by others before - this sounds like a badly produced and badly performed version of The Darling Buds. Please Alvvays fans, check out the The Darling Buds. Or The Primitives.

Solid band, terrific singer, and a more than promising debut album.
The second one is rounder, and so I like it better. But this one got many great tunes: Adult Diversion, Archie Marry me, Ones Who Love You, Party Police, The Agency Group...

A great debut album from Alvvays. Has a lot of catchy songs that are produced in a fun, retro kind of way.

Highlights- Adult Diversion, Archie, Marry Me, Red Planet

Great debut album!
Lovely voice, atmospheric synths, nice songs, nice 'n' dark lo-fi production.

Pleasent and inoffensive pop with some good songs (Archie, Marry Me), yet it fails to properly pique my interest when I play it.

Clever as Costello, janglier than The Byrds. A fresh, gorgeous, dreamy sound, and such memorable melodies. Why didn't I listen to this last year?
