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 BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.8/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

Sorry I didn't find this haunting, I found it boring.

Some of Harris's warmest and lovelist work is found here, but still has that slightly eerie ambience that's always present. You get the feeling that this is a deeply personal project, but she occasionally withholds a little too much from the listener for it to truly feel like an emotionally-charged, lived-in experience. The gorgeous Clearing proves Liz would've also made an excellent left-field indie-pop musician.

Very relaxing listen. Definitely a great listen for a quiet night. Really enjoyed the peaceful piano and ambiance on this one.
