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 This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.6/100, a mean average of 81.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

One of my favourite albums of all time! I love the murky, unique sound. This is much more than just an album comprised of Kid A's leftovers.

why does no one talk about this one? It's SO GOOD! Life in a glass house is probably my favorite song by them

Alright, here it comes...

Are we even listening to the same album?? Save for 3 songs, this album is a weird mess of cluttering noise rock. It doesn't have nearly the scope of Kid A, the instrumentation of In Rainbows or A Moon-Shaped Pool, nor does it have the cohesion of OK Computer or even that of Hail to The Thief.

I HATE how people think this is a jazzy album. Don't confuse noisy, static-rock with jazz. Jazz does have improvisation, but it follows a theme of syncopation and timing. Life in a Glasshouse has jazzy improvisational sounds to it and Dollars & Cents has a ride cymbal beat similar to that of jazz tunes, but that's as close to jazz at this album gets.

The fact that this album even comes close to threatening Is This It? for the best album of 2001 is beyond me! Don't reply or downvote because "You probably haven't even listened to it multiple times!". I've listened to it 4 or 5 times now, and I still don't get much of anything out of it. These songs don't deserve to be rated in the mid 80s to lower 90s and this album doesn't deserve to be held next to Kid A.

Stop scrubbing Radiohead's albums and forcing them to the top of your list if they don't deserve it! The band is allowed to make a couple bad albums, that's what makes their good albums so good! If you want people to hold Radiohead in such high regard as you, don't raise our expectations for subpar albums like this only to be let down by the product!

On a more positive note:

Top Tracks: Pyramid Song, Knives Out, Life in a Glasshouse

Amnesiac is certainly not as good as Kid A, In Rainbows or OK Computer, but I think it’s still an excellent album better than The Bends.

Some songs here are nothing like usual : not catchy, no choruses, sometimes no lyrics. It is unlikely to like these songs at first listen, but with several listens, you realize they contribute to make this record cohesive.

Standout tracks: Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army ?, and the amazing Life in a Glasshouse.

For years I did not like Amnesiac. Listening to it now, it still doesn't match up with their previous 3 albums, but to be fair, few bands can. Amnesiac is still really good.

Favorites: Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army?, I Might Be Wrong.

I know it's Kid A's leftovers and there are some very weird moments, but there's plenty of great tracks as well. Pyramid Song, You and Whose Army? and Knives Out are all top notch Radiohead classics.
