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 4% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

While there is some charm in the lyrics, instrumentally fully completely is bland, and the vocals are quite stale.
Songs like "Locked In The Trunk Of A Car" and "Courage (For Hugh MacLennan)" are instant classics.
Gord Downie is a national treasure, a national hero, and this is his collection of national anthems. Get well, Gord. We love you.
The Hip's greatest work. Just about every song on this album was and is a staple of Canadian FM and for good reason -- besides "The Wherewithal" there's not a weak track to be found. Despite Gord's lyrics often turning to the dark and bizzare, the album still manages to evoke a warm and summer-like atmosphere. For my money, Bobby Baker's solos never sounded better; he's hitting the right notes time and again. "Courage" and "Wheat Kings" are the true standouts, evidence that the Hip's songwriting has fully matured.
Very good rock/alternative rock/folk rock album. Best 10 songs average is 89,2/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Best songs are "Courage (for Hugh MacLennan)", "Looking for a place to happen", "At the hundredth meridian", "Pigeon camera", "Lionized" and "The wherewithal" all 90/100. All other songs good 80-85/100. Favourite!
Fully Completely is the Tragically Hip hitting the bigtime. If the album sounds like a greatest hits record, it's because every single spawned by this beast was indeed a hit. Unfortunately, this is also where the weakness of this album lies. More of a collection of great songs than a cohesive album, the Hip had figured out how to write the big songs but had yet created that perfect record... (see: Day for Night).
Greatly underappreciated band and album. This is the place to start with The Tragically Hip.
Nothing but great songs here.
Half of the songs from this 12 track album became hit singles.
"Looking for a Place to Happen"
"At the Hundredth Meridian"
"Locked in the Trunk of a Car"
The remaining six track are all just as good.
Rock with a panoramic dimension, "Fully Completely" is the 1992 album by "The Tragically Hip". Interwoven with Canadian references (David Milgaard, Jaques Cartier, Bill Barilko, the CBC), it's abundant with lyrically intelligence while basking in the hazy backdrop of gritty , rootsy guitars. The rhythm section is fixed firm as a growling bass purrs, and the resonating drums snap. Mature and well crafted track after track moves through straight ahead rock and folky acoustic accents. There a darkness to this album with a levity to counterbalances it. Each song is strong, well written and is packed full of energy.
Best Hip album.
Thanks for the history lesson.
