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 77.3/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

I'd argue that this album hasn't aged all too well because of the (sometimes) dated techno, but it hardly matters since the tracks on "Incunabula" are all impressive. Although scattershot, this record sustains interest and has many bright moments of innovation and a surprising amount of warmth throughout. Yes, Autechre are just getting started in 1993 and have yet to reach the pinnacle of their career, but this simply isn't a record that can easily be dismissed. If I had to pick a highlight I'd lean towards the wondrous "Basscadet" but all of this is really good stuff

The true symbol of 90s' electronic music, a masterpiece of darkness, cerebral melodies and cold industrial beats. Almost 80 minutes of pure electronic experimentation!

With 'Incunabula', the Manchester duo Autechre created a distinctive form of postmodern electronic music that was a vast improvement on the standard techno/'chill-out' music of the period. What separates Autechre from the crowd is the carefully calibrated nature of their music which they emphasize by their use of soft 'organic' rhythms. These rhythms skillfuly bridge synth-pop, Indian classical music, the minimilism of Terry Riley and the ambience of Brian Eno. In short, the music of Autechre is akin to a 'design in sound' that is both meticulous and intricate.
