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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.3/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

La versión otra:

Obra maestra psicodélica de proporciones colosales. Una especie de mezcla entre shoegaze y punk rock, que se transmuta alternadamente en drones y metafísicas odas de pulsaciones melódicas redundantes.

Su versión:

Este álbum lo está cansando mucho. Él lo escucha varias veces y después se aburre. Le parece demasiado simple y monótono.
Pero un día, inesperadamente, le parece demasiado fresco.
Así que un día lo escucha y la parece irritante.
Un día, sin embargo, lo conmueve tanto que no puede evitar soltar unas lágrimas.
A pesar de ello, un día lo empieza a escuchar y ni siquiera lo termina.
Un día lo escucha y casi se queda dormido con su exquisito arrullo.
Claro, un día se cansa y dice que sí, que ya, que es muy, muy bueno pero que tampoco tanto.
No, no es una versión psychedelic-hard-rock de Loveless. Sí, sí se escucha mejor en drogas. No, no tiene desperdicio alguno. Sí, sí tiene canciones que parecen mejores que el resto (pero no lo son, oh, yo te lo aseguro; no lo son).

Su resumen: definitivamente no es un álbum de shoegaze, pero definitivamente es el mejor álbum de shoegaze.

One of the most musically accomplished bands of their time and of any time), Bardo Pond produced a brilliant album that comprises a maelstrom of guitar distortions and manic drumming underscored by repetitively brutal, cosmic and supersonic drones. The overall soundscape is one that merges the post-rock and avante-garde experimentalism of Sonic Youth, the acid jam of Grateful Dead, the powerhouse blues of MC5 and the shoegazing of My Bloody Valentine. This is one of the key albums of the 1990s - it's reputation grows with the passage of time.
