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 79.7/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

* Favorite tracks: She Works Out Too Much, Little Dark Age, When You Die, TSLAMP, One Thing Left to Try
* Least favorite tracks: N/A (maybe Me and Michael if I had to choose one)
* Great blend of synth pop and neo-psychedelic music
* Every song is strong in its own way, and all are infectiously catchy
* Balances commercial appeal with many instances of quirky humor and weird little musical flourishes

7.6 out of 10.0
A good album for 2018. Sounds great compared to most filth these days. Sounds too 80's goodness. "Me and Micheal" stood out to me.
The last song sounds like Geroge Harrison's "My Sweet Lord."

Easily one of the most unique albums I have listened to from the past decade.
Absolutely love the sinister sounding synths on this.

I listened to this when it first came out and really didn't like it. I'm not sure why, I guess I wasn't in the right mood. After just listening to this again, I don't know what I was thinking. It's fantastic!

Such a smart record, it starts off giving you the best stand-alone songs MGMT has ever written then slowly devolves into experimental soundscapes. A very fun listen, the album is constantly changing after each track, starting off as a pretty good synth-pop album into an evolving masterpiece.

One of the most underrated albums of the 2010s. It is in a league of its own. Deserves more praise for sure.
