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 74.2/100, a mean average of 72.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

This is honestly the best Florence and the machine record. consistent. cohesive. catchy. complex. No duds, no fluff, no filler stuff. Just a straight-up practically flawless album.

Have never heard the previous two albums despite them selling more than this one. Agree with another commentary, no filler tracks. All wonderful. Great voice.

I like it more than Ceremonials. Ship to Wreck is an amazing song, What Kind of Man and Queen of Peace are really good. Some filler tracks, but overall, it's an enjoyable album

My favourite Florence + The Machine album. There's no bad song or filler in this album, and Florence's voice is tremendous. One of the best of 2015, it's beautiful!

Florence goes more pop with the production by Markus Dravs. One step above Ceremonials, but without a single strong as Shake it out.

Maybe there aren't song as her best ones but the album in his complex is the result of an artistically improvement.

By far not as great as Ceremonials. Don't like the new style that much. Florence, get back to your great, mysterious art pop as quick as you can!
