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 82.8/100, a mean average of 82.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

A masterful and excellent amalgam of Aphex Twin and Slowdive. I was expecting this to be more shoegaze-y, but the electronics are wonderful.
This album is all over the goddamn place, but like, in a good way.
This album sounds like my computer is breaking. I kinda, love it?
Melodic indie and experimental breakbeat.
My Bloody Valentine and Aphex Twin.
They very much love to repeat ad infinitum.
Catchy and simple melodies against complex electronic processing. Nice combo!
But the album is way too long.
Woah, pretty awesome album! A few of the songs where it's just 2 chords over and over again it can be exhausting but the atmospheres and production on this is freaking great especially for 2003. And the final few songs are crazy good. I don't think it needed to be as long as it is. But I'm not a shoegaze fan so I get that the 2 chords over and over again for 10 minutes is standard for the genre, and it's one of the better shoegaze albums I've heard for sure.
The last 3 songs tho
What an unknown masterpiece, like a pearl in a deep ocean of music!
I am very happy, that I discovered this LP.
@hitch (and everyone else that likes this album) Check out Katie Dey. She's doing some crazy glitch-gaze type stuff
Whenever I hear the news that this album comes on vinyl, I will lose my shit!
One of the greatest albums I've ever listened to. I think it could be made about 10 minute shorter by discarding the intro to International along with the entirety of Design 1. But still, I can't in good conscience give this anything but a perfect score. Even in its imperfection it still feels perfect, like this is what music had been working toward and since 2003 its just been on the decline. Also, shoegaze and glitch combo turned out to be such an oddly genius invention I can't believe this album didn't incite an entire new movement of glitchgaze. Unless it did. In which case somebody help a guy out
