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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

One of the fondest memories of my life is sitting on my bedroom floor at 1 am in absolute darkness with the best headphones I could find listening to this for the first time.

Beautiful conceptual record, best listened to when you can devote your whole attention to it. Heartbreaking stuff.

I haven't such strong emotions from listening to an album in some time... tearjerker of an album, and the driving instrumentation is superb. Still doesn't beat MPP for album of the year in my humble opinion, but boy is it close

Absolutely brilliant album, perhaps the third greatest album of the 00s along with Kid A and In Rainbows. This is also a great entry point to explore the rest of the Antlers discography.

One of the best concept albums of the last 20 years. Emotional, beautiful and heartbreaking.

If you can find a more devastating concept album that doesn't drift into pretentiousness, you need to send it to me right now! This is a modern classic that carries an earnest emotional weight which will pull you from the depths of despair when you face the tragic horrors of life, and will give you much needed perspective in times of unbridled joy and comfort. Appreciate what you have!

It was BEA that alerted me to this album, as it featured highly in those charts that were similar to mine. I've just listened to it beginning to end. Wow. It's a raw emotional rollercoaster of an album. Reminds me a little of "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea".
Looking forward to hearing it again.
