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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 87.5/100, a mean average of 85.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.2.

I'd never even heard of these guys prior to coming onto this site. Being rated so high I gave it a listen on Spotify, thought it was alright and managed to track myself down a copy. It took a few listens before it fully clicked with me. Now I find it very addictive and have it on high rotation.
The sequencing and seguing from one song to the next is total perfection. An absolute true gem of an album.

First four tracks reach absurd levels of greatness, the rest was a slight let down in comparison.

This is not an overrated album. It is intense, beautiful and dramatic. It takes a while to make sense. Probably it will not blow your mind on the first listen. Give it a couple of listens and it will grow on you. A masterpiece

Overall, I just wasn't really a fan of this one. The vocals are often really grating, and the fuzziness makes me feel like my brain is gonna rattle out of my skull. There were some good parts here and there, but it's not my cup of tea.

I didn't get it the first time I listened. Or the second. Or the third. And probably many times after that. I didn't like it, in fact I kind of hated it. I thought it was stupid. Then I liked a song or two. Then one day it all clicked. It flows like a river. It tells a story like a man who's seen it all. It floods your mind with wonders in a fairytale of lyricism. It is raw. It is a symphony of sounds. It's folk. It's indie. It's psychedelia. It's rock. It's beautiful.

09/14/2020 and it is my first time listening to it. I definitely loved it and I already added it into my favourite albums top. The average I got from every song is 84.09 (85), so that's my score for now, but I'm sure I'll keep listening to it and I hope someday I'll give it a 90 or maybe even more.
My favourite songs were Two-headed Boy, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, and The King of Carrot Flowers I.
