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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

One of those “where did the time go” albums being released 14 years ago as I write this in 2021

‘FWNM’ is such a leap forward from its predecessor its hard to believe its the same band however I’m not as enamoured with the overall package as its high Overall Rank (239) would indicate. Sure there are some killer tracks here bookending the album in “Brainstorm”, “Teddy Picker” (easily one of my all time favourite AM tracks), “ D is for Dangerous” “Fluorescent Adolescent” and “505” however the album looses pace through the middle 3rd with a bunch of average to poor entries

‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’ is good with an asterisk

A very good successor to their first record. The style had a few departure, but it's still accessible for an Arctic Monkeys record. Even the songs are just as great.

Some bright moments, especially the first two tracks and the closer, but overall a disappointing follow up to their debut album.

One of the most consistently good albums ever. If you took out "The Bad Thing" and "Old Yellow Bricks" this album would actually be perfect. Unfortunaetly those two tracks somewhat bring down the overall quality. But despite that, this record is phenomenal and is incredibly relistenable.

Best Tracks: 505, Fluorescent Adolescent, Do Me A Favour, Brianstorm, Teddy Picker, Only Ones Who Know
Worst Tracks: Old Yellow Bricks, The Bad Thing

9.2/10 A consistently great hard rock album. This is where Matt Helders really shows himself to be one of the greatest drummers ever.

Favorites: Brianstorm and 505 (9.5/10)
Least Favorite: The Bad Thing (8.2/10)

Their best album. It takes the biting remarks and observations of their debut album and build more story on it in each song. Their subject content is also more mature, reflecting on their image in the public eye, aging, thrills in relationships, and breakups. The instrumentation is never better on any other, either, with Matt Helders frantic drumming a particular highlight. Jamie Cook's tremolo and reverb solos add great effect and tone to the snark and dark feel. Only The Bad Thing can be seen as meh, but it follows the albums themes, both musically and lyrically, so it is quite forgiven. But everything else is flawless.

At first, you think this record is too much like his predecessor, but you notice at half the album than the sound is evolving. A great album led by a masterpiece.

Standout tracks: Fluorescent Adolescent, Do Me a Favour, 505

For me the first four tracks don't work, then the album picks up ending with the best track.

I really couldn't get into their debut, but this is absolutely fantastic! Very solid sound all throughout. The second half isn't nearly as strong but it's a nice album to listen to in the background, and I don't say that as something bad. One of those alt rock records to accompany an evening.
