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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.2/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.6.

His best album by far. If the whistling in Oh No doesn't grab you right away, goddamn.

This album is at times both brilliant and frustrating. Oh No, Fitz and Dizzyspells and Effigy are remarkably pretty and melodic songs. Masterswarm and Souverian are lengthier tracks, with interesting structures and moments of smart complexity. On the other side of things, the album is held back by sections that fall into bland faceless folky-indieness, or rely to much on witty wordplay instead of Andrew Bird's compositional talent.

Just as solid as his previous album. It might as well be a sequel. Consistent-but-not-great, so it's probable this will be overlooked by more ambitious albums later on. He has a way with twisting english idioms apparent in track names like "anoanimal", "souverian" and "nomenclature". He continues to be a clever songwriter.
