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 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

I like Courtney's ability and her snarky observations. But I don't know how much this album will stay with me. There are some pretty solid songs on here though.
Pedestrian At Best, Small Poppies, Depreston, and Kim's Caravan.

I've been listening to this album since it came out, but I have a version with Avant Gardner and History Eraser as songs 12/13, and I've always thought that's the only, "correct" version lol. Right now I've learnt that I'm wrong. Anyways while those two are certainly great, the whole album is excellent so the rating is applicable for any version of tracklisting. Such a beautiful voice, and incredible lyrics and songwriting.

A distillation of everything we like and fetishize about the classic alternative era (Nirvana, Beck, Pavement, you name it), [Sometimes I Sit and Think] is not merely the Great 90's Album that never was. Courtney Barnett's wit and wisdom, as well as a mean guitar which she plays herself, mind you, elevates this and her earlier double-EP to a more timeless level. Rock'n'Roll is still kicking, and has found a new torchbearer.

Very pleasant, unpretentious homely record. Obviously nothing special and revolutionary but it defends itself.

Fresco rock cantautorale non così tanto ricalcato sui modelli soliti bensì personale, ruvido, una Lucinda Williams punk... E ironico, fin dal titolo. Ascoltandolo più volte l'ho un po' ridimensionato, soprattutto per via della scrittura che non è ( ancora ) al top; nell'attesa che lo diventi questo rimane comunque un buon modo di iniziare...

A relative newcomer with a couple of very good albums under her belt. Interesting musically but,the lyrics are what stands out. Depreston is inspired. I,can’t wait to see how this,artist develops over the coming years. Is she this generation’s Dylan? We will see.

Fantastic album. There's something intelligent, fresh, and ambitious here, while not too pretentious either.
