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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

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.

I like it quite a lot. Maybe once in a while. Undoubtedly good, though.
