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 6% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Listen up potential bands and why it’s important to get your band name settled

the

first

time

Case in point right here. Viet Cong release killer self titled post punk album that appears in most year end best of lists setting the stage for the major breakthrough the band have been seeking. But wait, that name Viet Cong its a bit on the nose so it has go. Let’s call ourselves Preoccupations instead . Cue Tumble Weeds and all momentum lost to this very day

With more consistency it would be an 85 or perhaps I just need a few more listen. It is a little known, kick ass album. Bunker Buster and Continental Shelf standout. Future classic? Possibly!

This album will become a classic with time. In my opinion, Viet cong is the best post-rock album of the decade (2000s).

Pretty solid debut album. Although the album is only 7 songs, some of them are fairly long. It gets a little too noisy for my liking at times.

Stand-out tracks: Bunker Buster, Continental shelf, Silhouettes

One of the better albums of 2015 I think. The quite heavy post punk feel is brilliant. Nice rhyme- overall fun album.
It has a very strong introduction undoubtedly, it seems to lack a bit as it comes closer to an end but yet doesn't fail to entertain and get your toes tapping throughout.
