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 11% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.4/100, a mean average of 74.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Taking the sound they created in their first album to new levels, this album is chock full of catchy unique sounds that keep you going. I can easily listen to this whole thing without skipping a song. One thing I love most about this record is how it flips between pleasing poppy tracks and assaultive noise (i.e Celestica to Doe Deer)

Favorite tracks: Not In Love, Doe Deer, Baptism, Empathy

Another weird record. Some really accessible, melodic parts and lots of fairly way out ideas. Not unlistenable but not great.

Slightly more maturer than their 2008 self-titled release. A few filler tracks but pretty much just as enjoyable as their first. Baptism was one of the craziest songs I have ever seen performed live.

Though there are certainly a few redeemable moments, this mostly plays out as a repetitive, overlong piece of shit.

A set of very different tracks. A few are even good but most of them for me are unsuccessful experiments

If you like the sort of music that accompanies Supermario games, then tis is the album for you.

Has pretty many good songs but somehow the whole is not nearly as good as the last album. Also the album would be much better if it included the Robert Smith sung version of Not In Love, which is one of the better singles of the past few years.
