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 has a Bayesian average rating of 74.0/100, a mean average of 73.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

The way I feel about this album is the same as I feel about Raven and Hand Cannot Erase. Enough said.

A decent B-sides album for Raven That Refused to Sing and Hand Cannot Erase. I feel one's opinion on this album is going to widely vary depending on how you felt about Steven Wilson's last two albums. If you're not a huge fan of Steven Wilson's solo stuff then I recommend giving this album a skip. There's not much for you here except maybe the Porcupine Tree cover of Don't Hate Me at the end of the album. But if you're a Steven Wilson fan like I am, then you're going to appreciate having this with your collection of Steven Wilson songs and should still get some joy from this album especially during first listen. It's a whole new album of Steven Wilson songs... What can be wrong with that?
