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 Bayesian average rating of 86.4/100, a mean average of 85.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Very sad that there are people like DoctorBob who come here just to insult an album that means so much to so many people.

This album has had an indescribable impact on my life. It's one of the most beautiful and poignant pieces of art I've ever come across.

A masterpiece of an album, set my expectations so high that I never really got into his other work.

Should have known better is my favorite song of the 2010's. That's the only song that chokes me up. I can relate to a lot of Stevens' childhood experiences especially should have known better and no shade in the shadow of the cross.

Carrie & Lowell is sober, sad, and crushing. Stevens writes beautifully about his troubled relationship with his mother and the self destruction that follows. The instrumentation, to be honest, is rather forgettable. I can't really remember any notes or melodies from this album. Still, it is a solid work and i hope it brings him comfort.
