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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

3rd highest rated... 9th highest ranked... same era as the 2 highest ranked which are also the 2 highest rated.... hmmm.... explanation: if you have a fall record in your charts it's either hex enduction or this nation's saving grace, and there just isn't enough room for more records by the fall. or isn't that the explanation?

Great album, quite a softer and more melodic approach than anything previous the Fall had done at this point.

Looking at the track listing now, I think it makes for a better collection with the various b-sides like No Bulbs and Draygo's Guilt included. Still, for me, the best two tracks are Disney's Dream Debased and Lay Of The Land.
