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 mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

This is a solid record, yet it pales in comparison to the two seminal Arcade Fire Records, Neon Bible and Funeral, and that's probably because of a lack of polarity. The songs don't distinguish themselves enough in order to really thrive.

This is my favorite Arcade Fire album. Their first album is great but a little to heavy at times, I have to be in the mood. The Suburbs sounds good all the time.

At first, it makes a huge impression on you. It did for everyone at the time. But I, like so many others, don't come back to it very often. There is a bit of filler and songs that sound too similar. My personal issue is that Win's voice is too limited and get's boring after a while. It is still one of the best albums of the 2010's, but it is not the best. I really, truly hate calling anything overrated, because usually, like in the case of the Beatles, some things deserved to be rated over others. This is not one of those albums. It is overrated, but it is still a great album. Get what you can out of it, as it is still worth listening to over 70% of the crap out today. Top 500 albums of all time material, no doubt....but 40th best? Obviously you have some indie fanatics giving unrealistic praises in the rating system. I admit I was one of those people, but now I have had time to reflect and see the imperfections of a seemingly perfect album.
