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 83.3/100, a mean average of 82.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

First impression: Darker than previous albyúms, and for that is not necessarily a good thing.
The latter half of the album made a better impression. It takes time...

Many times, electronic albums sound like 10 versions of the same song. Mezzanine is far more diverse, as each song constitutes a separate idea.

The music is deliberate but not boring. Sensual but not tasteless. Intense but not one-dimensional.

In short, this might be the best electronica record I’ve ever heard.

Dark, atmospheric, brilliant. Sounds nothing like any other album I have. Couldn't agree more with earlier comment by D Krug2009 - "It’s the kind of album you put on driving in the city at night and just cruise to". A change in sound from their first two albums. The first 4 songs are an amazing start to the album. It fades away in the second half though unfortunately, which drags my rating down. My highlights are Risingson, Teardrop (obviously), Interia Creeps and Dissolved Girl.

It’s a very dark ominous album that sounds like the vibe of Y2K. It’s the kind of album you put on driving in the city at night and just cruise to. Or you could listen to it in an introverted setting. It’s not my favorite Massive Attack album but it’s definitely worth listening to. It’s their most developed project for sure

Pura mágica, os efeitos hipnóticos e atmosféricos são a base de muita coisa de agora.

L'ambiance de cet album est juste dingue, c'est dark, c'est peusant, mais ca dégage quelque chose de joyeux, j'adore !

Not typical of my active listening, but a pretty good soundtrack for a headphone session of morning productivity.
