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)

There is a lot to enjoy on this record and also a lot to explore. The first 4 songs are just brilliant with the repetitiveness getting stuck in your head and then the group building on top of that with their instrumentals which makes for a fantastic listen. It almost sends you into a state of bliss during these moments and you forget that you are even listening to music and instead feel like you are part of a greater experience. It is pure post rock perfection at the start and I love revisiting this album just for those songs. After this it does slow down in my opinion and doesn't reach these heights again. The atmosphere and vibe is maintained and it is still extremely easy to relax to the music but it is just missing that edge they had at the beginning. While there are glimpses of the extraordinary in songs like Four-Day Interval and Everglade it just doesn't resonate as well with me but I still enjoy the music very much. Overall, a very good post rock album that is perfect for chilling and has some fantastically produced music to enjoy.
This album—TNT—is one of the greatest musical experiences out there. By the end of Ten-Day Interval, I feel like I've escaped reality, and from that point on the album leads me from place to place on a beautiful, hypnotic journey that doesn't let up until the last notes fade out on Everglade.
If you have the patience to learn the ins and outs of this album, you will be rewarded with a magical experience unlike any other.
The most comforting album I own.
There are too many things to say about Tortoise.
I love their music, the style of production, etc.
One of the most interesting bands alive.
With their rich combination of Steve Reich-style minimilism, dub, electronic music, funk, progressive Canterbury-style jazz-rock and rhythmic experimentation, Tortoise have invented a music that is closer to classical and jazz than rock.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
