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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.8/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

El mejor disco de Muse. Influenciados por Radiohead, combina canciones de ritmo tranquilo con otras realmente energéticas.

This album is filled with amazing songs that you will see yourself coming back to, time and time again. This is because of the amazing composition of music they have created which blends so many fantastic features. This includes mainly the guitar riffs and the drum work which are both so vibrant and consistently great throughout. The songs Butterflies And Hurricanes, Hysteria and Time Is Running Out display Muse at their peak and really bring the group up to a new level. Despite this, I do think the ending does drop off and I always find my attention wavering by the closing tracks. Overall, this album is amazing and without the few filler tracks and the dip in quality at the end it would be one of the greatest ever made.

If this was the first rock album I discovered on my own, this might have blown my mind. As it stands, I'm too old to fully enjoy any of this. And I'm only 22.

Après l'album Origin Of Symmetry qui était juste énorme, difficile de ne pas pas décevoir. Et là, le miracle, comme une continuité du précédent… Le retour de la première claque !

Absolution is the absolute(see what I did there?) album by Muse, even though it isn't my favorite. It is a natural evolution of their previous album, the same sound, but more polished and more balanced.

Did not listen to Muse for a while. I love their first 3 albums, but after that it became to bombastic in my opinion. Absolution is my second favorite after Origin, but it is s really close call. The ending is fantastic with 'Ruled By Secrecy'. Underrated song.
