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 79.5/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.1.

These guys really rocked at this point in their career. I love the reach of their ambition in this particular album in comparison to the previous album Showbiz.

Over the top but not too OTT (as they are prone to do). This is Muse getting it right

Best Muse record. Very emotional, raw and experimental. It is a shame they decided to abandon this style of work shortly after. This album is a rock masterpiece.

A good album, second half is a big drop-off though especially the last track. My favourites are Plug in Baby, New Born and Hyper Music. My 2nd favourite Muse album (so far), behind The Resistance.

I love the sound they discovered on this album. New Born and Plug in Baby have to be some of my favorite songs. And the neo space rock feeling on Bliss sounds so fresh.

I’ve always liked this album since I found it, it’s almost been 10 years since I found it, but I can finally explain why this album is great. It’s great for the way it’s written but specifically it’s chord progressions. It’s got amazing classical chord progressions and they flow very uniquely. I’m a musician and I study this album but many artists won’t give their musical map away and tell people why they study the music that they do but if you need to explain why Muse is amazing, it’s because this album has good chord progressions. You need to be a musician and understand music theory to explain further...

There is a lot of quality on display in this record, especially the vocal performance which is consistently amazing throughout. The drum work is also brilliant as it always is on Muse albums and the diversity it showed on each song meant there was a lot to explore. This record is a little slower than some of their other works and I did find that my concentration did waver whilst I was listening. It also is a little repetitive and most of the songs sound too similar for my liking. Overall, a fun and great album that isn't their best but is still a top album.

Solid sound and an amazing vocal performance. My one criticism is that the album felt a bit repetitive musically. Highlights: Bliss, Feeling Good, Screenager.

Grande viagens sonoras que servem de ponte entre o rock setentista e o neo-psicodélico dos anos 2000.
