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 78.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

It's so freaking consistent. Every Charli album has production things I have qualms with (mostly the vox correction because I think she sounds just fine naturally) but I eventually end up being just fine w/ the style because the songwriting and other parts of the production are just so darn pleasant to listen to. This is a definition of guilty pleasure artist that you eventually accept that you just straight up like. The arrangements of synths & those synthetic drums are just so great when the sound goes into my ears and is then processed by my brain.

I like Charli XCX

She went straight to the centre of Pop and exploded the fuck out of it.

Really great production from A.G. Cook, SOPHIE, etc, and definitely Charli's best work. Not the most consistent from song to song, but worth a listen if you like a lot of BEEP sounds and autotune in your pop (I do).

At times it does feel like a retread of the innovative singles that Sophie has been putting out for years, but there's no denying that "Pop 2" is a consistently pleasing mixtape that is leaps and bounds ahead of most pop stars today and their churned output. By experimenting with production, features and her own vocals, Charli has created her best work yet as she continues to forge a glowing path between the mainstream and indie spheres.

I'm pretty optimistic that one day Charli XCX will surprise us with a very consistent release, quality wise. She's not there quite yet with Pop 2, having still a few throwaway songs amid some outstanding bangers but I can say with this and her Vroom Vroom Ep last year, that she's on the right track.
"I Got It" and "Track 10" are the standouts for me.

I've really liked Charli XCX since Modern Romance, and I honestly think this is her best work yet. It's adventurous, and weirdly accessible for pop this experimental. I love it.
