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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

An album that is a great start and gives the artist a very solid ground to build off. There are some great moments on here such as Loud Places, Seesaw and Stranger In A Room. The production is fantastic and really makes this a smooth listen for anyone who comes across it. This is because the production makes the beats sound so fresh and detailed and so you can really bop alongside them. The artist definitely has a style as well and sticks to that for most of the record making it very cohesive. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement. It feels quite bare at times and very slow on some of the filler tracks. Musically, it isn't that in depth and so it can get a little repetitive by the end and when you come back for future listens you do struggle to find stuff to keep you entertained. Overall, the foundations are there for a fantastic artist but they just need to be built on a bit more in my opinion but this is still a good listen.

I rarely include electronic albums and artists on my end of year lists with the exceptions of New Order and James Blake and this one. Jamie Smith had built a substantial following through a bunch of excellent singles and of course as the beatsmith of pop trio the xx so expectations for his debut (and so far only album) were high. Fortunately he would deliver in spades and then some with ‘In Colour’ correctly ranked as a top ten album for 2015 and an album all music lover should listen to

The album starts of really strong, but hits a lull from the 6th to 8th track. There is a lot of positive in this album, but it does feel a little monotonous at times.

Best tracks: Sleep Sound, Girl
Worst Track: Stranger in a Room

Truly the best thing I heard all last year. I understand most people not digging it but it is definitely great for me.

A pretty good album made by Jamie xx. Loud Places and I Know There's Gonna Be Good Times are my favorite tracks on this album. No bad tracks on the album, but nothing too outstanding to make it known as one of the best albums ever.

I found this album to be nice, but not really special in any way. This is a genre of music that I usually love, dance music that expands beyond just four-to-the-floor thinking, but I just couldn't get into this album at all. May revisit later, but for now it'll remain as a slight disappointment given all the hype I'd heard.

Jamie xx succeeds by making calm, subtle, entrancing rhythms with absolutely stellar production. This is probably the ultimate headphones album of 2015 as a result. This collection of songs, despite a somewhat slow, weak section in the middle, still holds together as some of the finest production work of the decade, and a pretty great album too. The highlight, "Loud Places", is my favorite song of 2015, and is absolutely heartwrenching and yet still almost danceable. Unfortunately, the next song ABSOLUTELY DESTROYS what "Loud Noises" set up in terms of mood and tempo. I can forgive Jamie xx for a lot of things, but the fact that he put that song right there is the only thing that I truly think really holds this album back. Other than that small misstep, the album passes with flying colors.
