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 12% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.9.

Predictably, my preferred of the two Beach House albums is the darker of the two. It sounds like they recorded the whole thing in anticipation of the release of Twin Peaks Season 3 but then couldn’t wait and just released it shortly after the other album.

Best track: Elegy To The Void. That strum I like is going to come back in style.

This one was a nice listen, but overall a mixed bag.

I'll start with the good: Elegy to the Void, Somewhere Tonight, and Majorette are three of the finest tracks Beach House has ever released. If the rest of the record had been even close to the quality of these few, it would have been one of their best.

However, despite having a few other solid tracks like Rough Song, there is a whole heap of material on this record that just feels lethargic and underdeveloped. "All Your Yeahs" may be a departure into Faith-era-Cure inspired minimalism, but it just feels bare. It doesn't suit them at all, in my opinion. "She's So Lovely" has some gorgeous layered ideas, but it just drags along so lifelessly that I can't help but be simply bored with it.

Overall, the highs are high and the lows are low, to the extent that this record is all right, but definitely had the potential to be fantastic.

Favorite Tracks: Elegy to the Void, Somewhere Tonight, Majorette

Least Favorite: Common Girl

I'm a total sucker for this type of music. Hazy, laconic, drugged out. The perfect stuff for a codeine cough syrup bender. To me, it's the ultimate romantic music in the world. Of course, I also think Charlotte Sometimes is the most romantic song in the entire world. While my kids ( & probably most well adjusted people) think this music sounds depressing, I find it the happiest most uplifting stuff in the entire world and almost nothing puts me in a better mood.

As far as I can tell, this is as good as any Beach House record released. And I've been a fan of theirs since Devotion. I definitely like it better than Depression Cherry. A lot of it has to do with the guitars which are sometimes set to stun as well as the more stripped down production. Plus, there's not a single clunker among the batch.

Unlike some people, I actually love it when a band finds something they are really, really good at and than just subtly tinker with that formula for the rest of their career.

Grade: A. Totally addicting dream pop which I would put up against any of their other releases.

Somewhere Tonight is such a great depressing song.

From CryingGameDahlin 12/31/2015 10:09
There's something almost fishy about how quickly this was released after DC- it almost feels like they just re-recorded the lesser Devotion and Teen Dream b-sides. It's a better album than the weightless Depression Cherry, Ill give it that, and it's nice to see a renewed attention to songcraft, but there's nothing here that really stands out... it all just kind of glides around pleasently and aimlessly with it's feet barely above ground. It works fine enough as pleasent background music, but it's attempt to regain that special spark that marked the more engaging lo-fi style of Devotion and the sort of (how do I put it) intimate grandeur of their masterpiece Teen Dream, just doesn't really work. Not a bad album by any means, but let's hope this is not the best they can do going forward.

Good but too subdued and deja-vu-ish reimaging of the more vintage Beach House sound, not as shapeless as Depression Cherry but not particularly meomorable either, but a soothing and pleasent listen of slightly-lesser Beach House is just fine... for now.

Pretty good album. I enjoyed it a bit more than Depression Cherry but I wasn't amazed by either

Lovely freaking album. Maybe not as many highs as Depression Cherry, but a little more consistent.

Obviously the two new Beach House albums have created a divisive debate as to which is superior, but I'm shocked at how much lower this one is currently ranked here. I'm assuming it will even itself out as we get further from the release, but for me Thank Your Lucky Stars is far superior. It may be simply because I need a good hook, and I find these ones both stronger and more prevalent. But overall it just feels like more of a step forward or simply away from their previous albums, and it feels like it was the right time for it. "All Your Yeahs" is possibly my favorite song of '15.
