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 86.2/100, a mean average of 85.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Very dark and brooding but still has elements where the desire to have songs still have catchy ear-wiggy moments is high. It sparkles and shimmers throughout and feels like an experience especially when listened to alone where your mind can let you explore the darkest corners of your mind guided by the album.

Their masterpiece in terms of songwritting and instrumentation, but the vocals sound a bit too affected in a way that takes something away from the otherwise heartfelt emotions of the song. Ig I prefer earlier The Cure in terms of vocals, but this is still objectively their masterpiece.

The drums are thin and repetitive. The guitar and synth generally get stuck in a rut. Smith’s voice is pitchy and irritating.

But…the overall combination kind of works? I don’t think I’ll ever be a fan of Brit Pop, but this record flows well and tends not to drag too bad.

I just can't get in to this as an album, despite its critical acclaim. It's a bit too long for me. But it contains some great songs. Lullaby is probably my second favourite Cure song behind Just Like Heaven, Lovesong and Fascination Street are good too.

Not many albums listed as a life changing experience in my lifetime. Disintegration is one of them.

I think the sound of Robert Smith's voice just makes everything The Cure touches a tremendous experience. Not my favorite album of the genre (The Queen is Dead lives on an untouchable pedestal for me) but it is a great listen.
