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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

It's just not landing for me - perhaps too much going on in the songs and my attention is pulled all over and leaves me unable to find the melodies and intricacies...
On a re-listen it is the final track that is most like that and the others are better than I recall and not as .... confusing? Grating? I don't know

The darkest and, imo, the best AnCo release.

Solid follow-up to what was easily the best album of 2009. This is Animal Collective on-top of their game with some ridiculously acid drenched melodies and catchy hooks. I still can't believe how good a song "What Would I Want? Sky" is, seriously it's freakin addictive

This is the best thing AnCo have done, as far as I'm concerned.

This album really sounds like an extension of "merriweather post pavilion", and that's the best compliment I think I can attribute to this EP. "what would I want? sky" is as good as any of the best stuff from MPP. "graze" borrows from its song structure starting atmospheric and mesmerizing until kicking in the party mix at the halfway point.
