The group's post-rock albums (1988's Spirit of Eden and 1991's Laughing Stock) are both often cited as masterpieces. They're both terrific, but I'm partial to this transitional record, which combines hook-filled pop songs with inventive, organic arrangements. [First added to this chart: 11/15/2016]

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 charts can have several thousand ratings)

This chart is rated in the top 4% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 88.5/100, a mean average of 88.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.8/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 8.4.

Perfect mix of widely accepted classics and albums that I personally find classics. I think you're the only other chart of the day besides my own to have I Like it when you sleep by The 1975!!!

Some classics as you'd expect but also some left field selections which makes it a more interesting chart. Nice one.
