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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.3/100, a mean average of 72.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

This is Bat For Lashes best album by far, The more downbeat second half is something special. Didn't find this dull at all.

Alternately bewitching and tedious- mixing some of the qualities of her best work (fur&gold, the haunted man) but only occasionally finding the spark that made those albums so beguiling while sharing some of their more noticeable flaws. All in all it mirrors the equally uneven and ambitious Two Suns, but the high points are fewer and far between despite some lovely, well-crafted individual gems.

Although Sunday Love is a jam, most of everything else doesn't to get an emotion out of me. Boring and predictable music.
