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 82.6/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

A decent record with interesting musical arrangements but it does sound a bit dated in the modern day. The sound also becomes quite repetitive by the end as most of the songs sound so similar that I do find myself craving some diversity. Despite this, the music is very unique and you will straight away know when you hear a Kraftwerk song. I think the voice works perfectly with the musical stylings as well and it adds a lot to the songs for me. Overall, I don't think this is as consistent as some of their other records but it does have the huge song of The Model which is brilliant and makes it worth checking out.

This is probably my favorite Kraftwerk album and I actually prefer it over Trans-Europa Express, it is not so eerie, but the theme of it just sticks more with me.

If you wanna get into Kraftwerk, this is a more fitting starting point than Trans-Europa Express, which might be too much as a first album.

My dad helped ease me into the world of electronic music and synthesizers from an early age, so I immediately loved Kraftwerk when I finally decided to check them out for my own. Die Mensch·Maschine is probably their most accessible work I've heard so far, it sounds fat and full, especially compared to their more minimal arrangements in the past. Das Model and Die Roboter are fantastic suites in their catalog, but the entire thing is well worth doing a deep dive into.
