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 has a Bayesian average rating of 69.7/100, a mean average of 69.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

This album makes me mad. It is good and it is bad at the same time. Sometimes, the songs are working and you can feel and understand what Gibbard is trying to say (No Room In Frame, The Ghosts of Beverly Drive, Everything's A Ceiling, El Dorado, Ingenue). And sometimes, it just doesn't work (Binary Sea, Black Sun). Even the songs themselves are sometimes good, sometimes bad. I really like the verses of "Black Sun" and the guitar solo is amazing, but the choruses... I just don't get why they have to repeat it that many times without any progression at all. Same thing with "Little Wanderer", great verses, but the choruses are boring and childish. And you can say the exact same thing about "Good Help (Is Hard To Find)". "You've Haunted Me All My Life" sounds like a song they've done before, except they've done it way better in the past.

A very insonsistent album from a great band. Not a bad album by any mean, but Death Cab For Cutie can do (and have done) better than that.

Everything Ben Gibbard touches turns to gold. Including this record. It seems to stray from their earlier work a bit, but not in a bad way at all. One of my favorites of the year for sure. 'Hold No Guns' rocked my world. Track after track of practical, simple, genius. 10/10.

Not a great starting point if you're getting into the band. This should still please fans and Black Sun is certainly a new favorite of mine.

A bit underwhelming considering their past achievements, but generally a pretty solid album that takes a little while to grow on you.

I seem to love this band sporadically and it's without rhyme or reason.

Same goes with this record. I heard one song on the radio I didn't like, gave this a try and love it.

It's extremely hard for me to be impartial when it comes to Death Cab. I'll probably adore anything they do. Kintsugi is probably Death Cab's least actively unified album. Stylistically, it's all over the place. There's also a strange lack of songs fading in and out of one another. And I would be lying if I didn't miss jam out tracks in the same vein as "Doors Unlocked and Open," "I Will Possess Your Heart," or "Transatlanticism." Still, this is a really good album that I can tell is going to grow on me.
