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 has a mean average rating of 71.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 72.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

It's an interesting direction the band took after the completely overrated and uninspired AM. I like the idea and the production/mixing, though the second half really lacks on the album. The first four songs are very easy to listen to straight through, and if Four Out of Five didn't draw on for 30 seconds too long, the first 7 would be easy to listen to. However, Golden Trunks, Science Fiction, and The Ultracheese are forgettable and a little too indulgent for what they are. Nevertheless, they provide a different sounding record that hearkens back to Bowie and piano rock albums, and give me as a fan something to look forward to. Not the best, but not the worst by any means.

They sacrifice edge and clever hooks for loungey cool. Not a good trade.

Not a bad album at all. They take the vapid feeling of AM and color it in with lush production and a nice variety of instrumentation. The lyricism is witty and cynical, but the sounds give it an elegant, Bowie-esque feel. "Science Fiction" and "Golden Trunks" aren't good, but I like the concept of the rest of the album. The first four songs are a particular highlight for me. They flow very well. I just hope they give Jamie Cook and Matt Helders more to do going forward. They're incredibly talented musicians but are relegated to secondary roles here.

Even if you wanna believe rock isn't dead yet, it sure has lost all its edge. All of it. It's painful to watch.

Pretty mediocre. The "witty" writing, if you can call it that, gets old pretty fast, and the hardcore fans who claim whats-his-face is a lyrical genius don't do much to make me change my mind. Unfortunately this album feels like it drags on even though it's just over 40 minutes. I suppose this isn't my cup, and it probably is one of those albums that'll sit on my laptop for a few years, before I delete. It's such a shame. This album is fine from a technical standpoint, but it just don't connect and honestly already feels 10 years stale.

This album is the proof that Arctic Monkeys are in constant evolution. Who thought they would move from WPSIA to this moody, cool record ? Well, it’s this kinda mood that makes me like this beautiful album led by the sublime Four Out of Five.

Standout tracks: Star Treatment, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, Four Out of Five.

You need a few listens to get acquainted with the sound but once it clicks it becomes very enjoyable. I tend to skip Golden Trunks, the weakest spot on the album (which was one of my favourites on first listen). I never thought I would like Batphone but it has come a long way.

Favourite tracks: American Sports, TBHC, Four Out Of Five, Batphone

The problem is, not only this album doesn't fit in Artic Monkeys in anyway, sounding way more like an Shadow Puppets album, but also, even If It was a Shadow Puppets album, It would still be pretty sh#t.

Sorry, but It is a shame, Artic Monkeys had to me, the best discography of any 2000s band, I love every and each one of their albums, but this, this is unlistenable for the most part, except perphaps for "Four Stars out of Five" and "The Ultracheese".

It is just Alex Turner trying to make something out of Bowie and Iggy Pop, trying to be more "sofisticated" than It needs to be, i miss the times of "Suck It and See".

But again, is not that the album doesn't sound like AM, or that Alex Turner shouldn't write spacy lyrics, but, the way he did it and how It turned out in the album, It completely throws most people off, including me.
