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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 87.2/100, a mean average of 85.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

I am now addicted to this strange masterpiece.
Just a year or so ago I would casually return to it from time to time with the curiosity of a boy poking a failed firework, but recently I find I’m battling myself like a neutral milk junkie, struggling to go a week without a listen, drawn to its sensual dream-like adolescence, strange timbre and brave vocal shapings.
The music is pretty good. The lyrics are interesting. The vocal performance is absolutely disastrous and I simply can't enjoy almost any of the songs here as a result.
Listening to this album was a very strange experience... It didn't catch me at first, but it has something that makes it very addictive to listen to and keeps me coming back again and again. The use of acoustic guitar, combined with trumpets, organ and sound saturation, give it an interesting "noisy-folk" sound. The references to Anne Frank are very original. Perhaps the only problem with the album is that it can be a bit repetitive and tedious to listen to, but it's still highly recommended.
Opinión en español
Escuchar este álbum fue una experiencia muy extraña... no me atrapó en un principio, pero tiene algo que lo hace muy adictivo de escuchar y me hace volver una y otra vez. El uso de guitarra acústica, combinada con trompetas, el órgano y la saturación del sonido, le dan un sonido interesante de folk ruidoso. Las referencias a Ana Frank son muy originales. Tal vez el único problema del álbum es que puede ser un poco repetitivo y tedioso de eschar, pero sigue siendo muy recomendable.
Listened to this as it was highly rated on this site.
I have no idea how this is rated in the top 20 albums of all time. it's all the same, the lyrics are interesting at least.. the title track is decent, i enjoyed that. but the rest is just so boring.
but hey, each to their own. obviously many people get something out of this album but not me. on two listens i just don't get it. incredibly overrated. one of the worst albums i've ever listened to.
One of the most emotionally powerful albums I have listened to.
I came late to the album but known it since 2016 and I recall really enjoying it on first listen but it did take some time to penetrate and be amongst my favourite all time albums. I see poor Jeff's vocals getting called out in recent posts - but I couldn't imagine this album working with that perfect Hollywood vocal. Part of the charm is the struggled delivery. Lyrics are crazy. Love this album.
Really great and influential record
Strong 9 to light 10, near perfect album start to finish and doesn't overstay its welcome; pretty much top-tier indie-folk.
This kind of music is really difficult to appreciate for any particular reason Very Brit and '60s in vibe and mood.
Just one listen but will probably not listen to it again.
So much to unpack throughout this album. It is raw and incredibly abrasive but has moments of beauty that make for a perfect balance. The lyrics are challenging and unwavering in their attempts to be exactly that. It is rough but in a way that it wouldn't work if it was any other way.
