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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

What a nice journey. It definitely has an identifiable shoegaze, indie dream pop sound, but it really doesn't remind me of anyone in their field too much. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's highly innovative, but it's in its own special place. Great album.

One the very first bands to herald the shoegazing revival (now in it's 8th year). Lesser Matters is a brilliant album chock full of indie-pop gems.
