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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.9/100, a mean average of 75.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

I don't think either of the first two Pale Saints albums is better than the other. The Comforts of Madness is more consistent, sure, but In Ribbons has some pretty great highs, as well as some low lows. I love the female vocals, even if they're more scant than I would prefer.

In the 90's whilst the world was listening to grunge I was listening to a lot of shoe-gaze strangely enough ( and some grunge too) and my very favourite gazers were Pale Saints

This their second to last album has some good tracks in "Throwing Back the Apple" , "Hair Shoes" and "Featherframe" however the album labours in the 2nd half with many tracks that quite honestly arn't up to snuff . Snip 4 or 5 tracks and this could have been a terrific album , unfortunately this album fails as a complete piece

I'll be taking the few great songs from here and adding them to my Pale Saints Best Of Playlist

Inconsistent

Blah blah blah. Whatever. It's just one of the best albums ever. Nothing more to add. Cheers.

A fine "shoegazer" album both male and female vocals distinctive and touching.The "Throwing the Apple" ep well worth chasing down if it still exists.

I love this. I missed the first album at the time but got this not too long after it came out. Fits right in with the classics of the shoegazers. I like the first album when I got it years later but doesn't compre to this for me. The songs, vocals, production all fantastic. Great guitar work that's actually quite rocky in places, lead wise. Wish I'd seen this line up live but by time I saw them the main guy had left.

Excellent second album that yet again captures the Saints uncanny ability to mix terror with beauty that is often than not sublime. Best Tracks: Throwing Back The Apple, Hunted, and Hair Shoes.

A fantastic shoegazing album that has a lot of interesting instrumentals to offer.
