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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

This album proofs that Nigel can do no wrong. You can't listen and say it sounds bad.

Weak by Radiohead standards, I'd still argue that The King of Limbs is generally underrated. The second half is noticeably more interesting than the initial four songs. Lotus Flower is both the best song on the album and the start of a truly great string of tracks. This album maintains an intriguing, moody, atmosphere throughout. It all flows together very well even if it takes a little too long to really hit its stride. I appreciate this album a lot and it continues to grow on me with every listen. Unfortunately, given its slow, eerie vibe, this is rarely the Radiohead album I'm in the mood to listen to.

The worst album I've ever been foolish enough to listen to more than once.

After a couple listens, I feel I can finally make an informed opinion of this album. While I was pleasantly surprised at the overall package (as opposed to the lackluster things I'd heard about it), I do miss the instruments. I understand that it's a dance/electronica album, but it feels too much like a Thom Yorke album than a Radiohead album. The little sprinklets of guitar and bass that we do get is welcomed, but there's nothing satisfying.
With that said, I felt like there was pretty strong cohesion in theme and style throughout the album, as opposed to Amnesiac. Though it's a dance/electronica album, it's not trying to be Kid A. It knows where it stands and works in some nice little details within each song. Lotus Flower, especially, feels like Idioteque with more heart and soul put in.
Overall, I like the album. I don't think it should be in the top 10 albums of 2011, but I think it's pretty solid and has a unique sound. I just wasn't as satisfied without the feel of all 5 members.

Top Tracks: Bloom, Lotus Flower, Codex

The King of Limbs is not a standout in Radiohead’s discography and it’s probably their hardest album to get into. But after several listens, you realize there are some great moments and that the record is quite good.

Standout tracks: Bloom, Lotus Flower, Codex.

Love this, a great listen. The two halves work well together.

Currently their 8th (EIGHTH) best album.
