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 15% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.3/100, a mean average of 73.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

The most exciting collection of new ideas in one place this year. I can’t think of any other artist or band that has mixed so many influences and made it clear exactly why they all came together. What I love even more than that is that they have such a consistent visual identity, and it’s obvious that they have a lot more to show and tell. I for one look forward to seeing and hearing it all.

Best track: Irony. Utility. Pretext. I don’t know how they did it, but this mixes Detroit techno, gospel, soul, punk and industrial all in one song.

This is really good. But I feel that in this debut, there are some qualities that are capping this album for me. The main issue for me is that I feel the singer slurs his vocals. Even though they are soulful. Also the grandness of the album weirdly enough feels a bit cheap.

HOT. DAMN!!!!

Ugh. I can't express just how excellent this album is, in a year filled with excellent albums. This stands, so triumphantly, among the strongest LPs of the year. 100% recommend. I mean, it pulls from everywhere, from soul, to post punk, to industrial, to whatever you want. This isn't changing the game, but damn does it give it some fresh blood.
