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 82.4/100, a mean average of 81.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

This album is unbelievable, I have no idea how it's not higher given this site's biases

Beats me why Kid A gets so much hype when this record was released at the same time. This one is prettier, rocks harder, and is more electronic and experimental.

I don't get it. It's nice. I just don't see how it's a masterpiece, or how it rises above Daft Punk, DJ Shadow, Primal Scream, or even Jamiroquai or Basement Jaxx.

Warning! Masterpiece!!!
In 2000, out of nowhere this UFO, an album, fruit of the work of a band of Australian music lovers completely crazy, as magical as mad, as gargantuan as beautiful. An album-song that is heard from beginning to end with a stainless pleasure. Composed of 900 samples of music, film dialogue or soundtrack, "Since I Left You" is a joyful tote where rhythmic hip-hop, low disco, soul choruses and cinematographic quotes coexist. The absolute richness of the album is in the mastery of the musicians to stack the layers, chain the cuts. "Frontier Psychiatrist" ... A galloping horse hymn, Lawrence of Arabia's melody, hip-hop rhythms come on replicas of old movies "You're a nut, You're crazy in the coconut !!!", a symphonic orchestra factory in the background, solo crazy scratches ... A UFO among the stars. It's simple, a lot of years later, I still have not recovered. "Since I Left You" is an extremely refreshing album, teeming with thousands of fun ideas. The absolute jewel, the pearl ...
"Since I left you, I've found a world so new ..."

10/10

Before I listened I wondered why such a highly praised album only had 4-5 songs above 85+ in the ratings. Now I understand, this isn't an album filled with songs you can just bang on at any moment (aside from a few), this is something you are better of experiencing start to finish. Despite this, its each track is filled with tiny details and small bits and pieces that reveal themselves with every listen.

A lot more ambitious and interesting sampling work than most artists with the same method of composing, but at least when you put up Fatboy Slim or Daft Punk on the dancefloor, people will dig it.

It definitely takes a little to get used to, but the sound is pretty enjoyable once you do. However I find this album has too few tracks that really standout to me to warrant the praise it gets. I actually like Wildflower more

It's one of the most creative, unique and unconventional albums that you'll ever listen to. After 'Wildflower', I appreciate what The Avalanches did here even more -- after 10 years they couldn't even come close to the level of this masterpiece. It's hard to rate this album though, because it's so different to anything else that came out before or after. I think that a 10/10 is deserved, although usually I would reserve that to an album on which every song is good.
