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 89.3/100, a mean average of 87.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.4.

A beautiful, vulnerable album on what it means and how it feels to be human. This album is all about those grand, spacious emotions and Kid A delivers. Not a bad track on this record, with amazingly unique and innovative technical sounds and production, with the remnants of that old grunge sound- all while being distinctly Radiohead. This album goes by in a magnificent whirl, and flows together perfectly. Both the "greatest left turn in musical history" and the logical next step in Radiohead's evolution. Call it self-indulgent, or even pretentious, that high self-awareness may just be part of the beauty and idea behind it. It's abstract, seemingly random erratic lyrics capture an energy of raw mystery and realism that few other bands can capture. A truly mesmerizing experience.

One of the greatest technical achievement in popular music of all time. It sounds absolutely ridiculous but beyond the beauty of the production is the roller coaster of human emotions that the album takes you on. It is ultimately challenging but incredibly rewarding with highlights amongst the bands best ever.

An experimental change of sound from their previous three albums, but this experiment really worked out. It's almost unrecognizable from their previous work, yet it has become a staple of their discography and is critically acclaimed. A must-listen. My favourite tracks are In Limbo, The National Anthem, Everything In Its Right Place. Treefingers is a textbook filler track that offers nothing in my opinion and probably marked this amazing album down for me.

Following Ok Computer had to be an incredibly daunting task, but somehow Radiohead found a way to evolve their sound even further, while still presenting a wonderful product.
