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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 11% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 15.8.

Alt-J is fantastic by its originality, beautiful sound, atmospheric music, and great lyrics despite what people say(except maybe in RELAXER).

Their debut album is an absolute masterpiece, very underrated on this site. I like also the conceptual This Is All Yours and the controversial RELAXER, the last one receiving to much hate in my humble opinion.

They have plenty of great tracks : Dissolve Me, Fitzpleasure, 3WW, Tesselate, In Cold Blood, Every Other Freckle and the classic Breezeblocks. My favourite song is Taro. I love especially the intro and the magic sound in the chorus, but the lyrics are meaningful as well: it is about Robert Capa, a war photographer.

Alt-J is probably in my top five bands of the 2010s, but thats just an opinion ;)

I have no idea why so many people seem to have a Problem with the singers voice. It is so relaxing. One of my favourite bands for sure. But don't ever look up the lyrics...
Favourites:
Breezeblocks
Mathilda
In cold blood

Hit me Like that snare
Hunger of the pine

Interesting, sometimes very good songs but awful vocals. Well, if I could ignore the vocals I'd like them so much more

Fantastic music. So many of their songs are incredibly varied. My vote for band of the decade based on two albums.

This is probably one of the most original bands I've ever heard. No one sounds anything like them. An Awesome Wave was really good, but their follow up was not so much. Hopefully they put out a good third album.

They definitely have a lot of talent, and some of their songs are really good, but I think I'd like them a lot more if the singer had a voice less...grating. They also have quite a few songs that are just boring. But they do have 4 or 5 songs per album that are very much worth listening

Although i do like 'an awesome wave' and somewhat like 'this is all yours' im not to big of a fan. I think they have some good songs and they're albums are put together very well, but there is just something about them that i really dont like. Every time i listen to them i get a strange distant vibe that their music is to 'pop', or is headed in that direction. I thought i was right about this when i heard 'hunger of the pines' (which i hate) but there are still some good ones on their new album
