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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 83.1/100, a mean average of 82.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.8/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.9.

Often classified as "twee", (whatever that means) Belle and Sebastian are late 20th/early 21st century pop craftsmen/women who exceed ALL others who came before them. Their catalog is filled with one masterpiece after another. Genius!

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about Belle and Sebastian.
I think this album, the only one I've forked out money for, is OK but not to the level of brilliance and exuberance displayed by the many comments and high ratings. I am not going to publish rhetoric which demeans the album other than to say its not by cup of tea. IMO - average at best.

If You're Feeling Sinister is a truly great album. Most of their other great albums I really like as well and understand the acclaim even if I wouldn't rank them as some of my favorites.

I wonder if Stuart Murdoch realises how great song-writer actually he is. And I can't understand why most of the people don't notice how great he is.

When they go wrong, it's wildly disappointing. When they go right, which is often, it's really REALLY right. Few bands right consistently catchy, consistently smart, and consistently interesting songs and records for nearly twenty years.

If You're Feeling Sinister is my favourite album of all time. Tigermilk is in my top ten. The other tracks I listened to are also really nice. They created some of the best pieces of music I have ever heard.

Their first three albums are Christmas colours.

Also, very good.
