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 is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 89.4/100, a mean average of 87.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.3.

Comparing this to Bjork is like cake to pie... whether you choose either but both are beloved by majority people.

An album that brakes the rules, defies expectations, and sounds good while doing it are all great in my book. Radiohead goes "electronic" in deep, dark beautiful melancholy ways. Still sounds great after many years of revisits.

An album so breathtaking in its beauty. It's one of those albums that sound exactly like their album covers, in that I feel like I'm flying through the mountains when listening to it. The album defines the human experience better than any other album.

Kid A isn't my all time favourite for its individual tracks, as good as they are. It's my number one for the way it sucks you into its world as it unfolds before you, like a deep dark novel. It's also responsible for changing the way I listen to music and opening up a whole new world of brilliant music from the likes of Joanna Newson, Bjork, FKA Twigs and more.

Every -ok, almost every, there is one exception - Radiohead album is a major achievement and this could very well be the grandest of them all.

I gave it a try (again), because I like OK Computer, but I really don't understand the high ratings of this album. Sorry for all the people who like it a lot, but 4-5 songs is more than enough for me. Heavily overrated imo.

My favorite album of all time. Not just because it's a perfectly crafted and sequenced record. Nostalgia too. I was 18, and bought this the day before it came out. The record store owner slipped me a copy and said 'you didn't buy it from us'. I know it leaked and everything but at that time in my life it seemed like a big deal to have my hands on a physical copy of it and listen the night before the general public. And I had never heard music like it before. I didn't understand it at first (especially eiirp), but it grew on me and it didn't take long for it to become my all time favorite.
