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)

Intenso e honesto!
Car Seat Headrest serve as a reminder of how rock can still be interesting today. My only complaints might be that the songs like "Fill in the Blank" are even better fleshed out as a 7 piece, and there are moments like on "Vincent" where the guitar just goes back and forth between the same couple of chords excessively. It's not "bad", but it could have been more interesting. I'd love for the soloing in some of the live performances to be present on the album version and that would have really made "Vincent" hit much better. Unforgiving Girl and Cosmic Hero, while good feel like they could have been cut shorter. I don't feel like every track has the staying power like on "Twin Fantasy", but for the most part it's packed with very strong material, even the "duds" are great tracks if not compared to the rest.
"Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales" is of course a real stand out, but there are plenty of memorable moments throughout. "Tell my mother I'm going home I have been destroyed by hippie powers", "drugs are better with friends are better with drugs", and "I've been waiting all my life, I've been waiting for some real good porn" to list just a few.
Will uses his creativity to paint a vivid image of youth that really brings me back and makes me remember that time in my life.
That opening track's chorus gave me Alkaline Trio vibes. Throwback and a half. Good stuff on here. Lyrics are a bit angsty as usual but I dig the sound. One of the better albums of the 2010s.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Teens Of Denial is passionate album about not knowing what the hell to do in your college years. Will Toledo comes off as a clever song writer with his digs at his self and the situations around him. The songs can switch into different styles and really sell the feelings. There album has some flaws like tracks that go on too long and Toledo's limited vocal range. The main problem however is a lot of this album sounds like a collage of other artists. One minute you are listening to pixies then its pavement but never really Car Seat headrest. I do like this album but I feel like it needs to grown into it's own.
Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales
Fill In The Blank
The Ballad Of The Costa Concordia
(Joe Gets Kicked Out Of School For Using) Drugs With Friends (But Says This Isn't A Problem)
Recently re-listened to this album and it reminded me what a land mark release it is
The tracks "Vincent" and "The Ballad of Costa ..." aren't purely 2 of the best tracks in 2016 , they rank as 2 of the best tracks in the 2010's
