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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 78.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.5.

One of the best debuts in the 2010's

No flash in the pan here , this is the real deal from a group destined to be a legacy act

At first I thought, well, this is pretty ok. But second half of the album blew my mind, it is outstandingly beautiful. 8/10.

Humans and Animals are good catchy songs that offer an interesting contrast to the rest of the album that is a bit too drab and static.

Favorite tracks: Humans, Animals
Less favorite trakcs: Little Arrow, Velvet Ring
