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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

This is REAL, one of the most unique sounds last decade, this album is good at everything, but not great

Such a cool album. Love everything he does really so it's hard to choose a favorite Perfume Genius album. Has exciting songs and then some very dark ones. Pretty freaking magical if you ask me.

Whilst you may be initially drawn to the beautiful music you will be definitely rewarded with a deeper dive into the lyrics and their background

For example the track “GRID” is a commentary on AIDS / HIV in the 80’s when it was referred to as Gay Related Immune Deficiency and “My Body” discuses Mikes struggles with Chrones Disease and debilitating gastrointestinal condition

This album is a modern classic , and years after its release I'm still loving it

Like I suspect many other punters this was my first PG experience and I was immediately hooked . This album is so beautifully personal with soaring melodies and moving lyrics . I've since gone back to discover his back catalogue and there is much to enjoy there as well

A must listen for any music fan

This album is spotty for real tunes and mastered at an amateur level, but there's a reckless David Bowie-like swagger here that promises good things to come.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like Deerhunter's "Helicopter" was a huge influence for this record.

Maybe is an album very personal, and you hate it or you love it.
I hate it. I can say it haves a pretty sound and voice, but is bored. Monotonous.
I only feel in love, and a lot, from 'Queen'.

(Sry my bad english)

I was feeling really terrible about myself one night, so I marched out into the freezing weather for a walk and put this album on, and somehow its often-brooding sound just clicked perfectly. It has its moments of, relatively speaking, outlash and aggression, like the AMAZING 'Queen' and 'Grid,' but no matter how subdued or unrestrained the sound gets, it's always outstanding and wonderfully elegant, in a dark way.

I've really enjoyed this album, it has a perfect mix of beautiful melodies, kick ass synths and a powerful voice. It has a great flow. Top class album. "Fool" and "Queen" are impressive songs.

Perfectly crafted pop music. Dark, ethereal and savy. One of the best of the year so far...
