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 83.2/100, a mean average of 82.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Unpopular opinion, but I think part 2 of the title track is every bit as good as part 1

Superb album, arguably the climax of their career along with The Soft Bulletin. Opener and title track are some of the finest tracks ever recorded by the band, accidental plagiarism aside.

Completely missed this band at the time. 2018 listen and guided to it through positive reviews here - great album starting with the Father to Son rip off - "Fight Test". Also loving the "Do You Realize??" which/ appears to lend some of itself to Arcade Fires "Half Light" don't you think

This album is catchy and fun to listen to and the feeling and concept behind it are great. I don't listen to a lot from this genre but I genuinely love everything about Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, and it's been the gateway for me to listen to more albums like this.

Favourite songs: Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 1 & 2, In The Morning Of The Magicians

This album is gorgeous it sounds bunkers and It still is catchy as hell, it's lyrics are simple at the same time they are dreamy. So go on, listen to Yoshimi pt.1 and fight some robots, cause this album makes you feel like you actually could do that.
