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 16% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.7/100, a mean average of 74.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Maybe it's because I saw them on this tour but Trent pretty much perfected his sound on this album IMO. Beautifully crafted "bangers" from start to finish. Every album should have a great opener and closer and this pulls it off gracefully. Even the last track melds perfectly right back into the first. A true example of an underrated gem in the history of music.

Damn! Practically every song slaps. The Collector is the only clunker but even it is enjoyable. Apart from that this is just one one killer track after another. Such an underrated album.

More like Without Teeth.
And someone should have told Trent that he can't falsetto

Top 5 albums of 2005. Excellent and probably tied with Fragile as my favorite.

Nine Inch Nails' best album. Maybe it's the drums. Maybe it's the themes of the songs - they mean something to me. And the closing song Right Where It Belongs - I think it's the best NIN song so far

Trent Reznor's fourth full length effort as Nine Inch Nails is less ambitious than most of his other albums, but that is mainly due to the ambitious nature of nearly all of his work. The album doesn't push his sound into any particularly new direction, but is rather simplified compared to previous albums, nor are the songs linked together into a concept album. Instead, he focused on each song as its own identity instead of how it functions as part of the larger album. This leads to some great songs, including 7 of the first 8 songs on the album ("You Know What You Are?" is not to my taste), as well as "The Line Begins to Blur". The songs I haven't mentioned are solid but not great. The songs have a somewhat more conventional structure and sound compared to previous albums, which produces an less challenging album overall. Overall, the album was the weakest LP he had produced up that point, but it is still NIN, which makes it worth listening to, and features 8 really great tracks, which is enough for me to include it in my Top 100 chart.

Better than Downward Spiral, this album rocks more, surely one of the NIN masterpiece´s

NIN are a hell of a band (it’s a bit more complex than that) but they can be pretty hard to get into. Trent Reznor’s style of dark, swirling thumping music is fantastic and doesn’t really have a good comparison (perhaps later Radiohead and Marilyn Manson) but it’s easy to get lost or disinterested before you get into it. The Downward Spiral is certainly the best of his albums, but the intros are almost Pink Floydian in how long and ridiculous they are. Pretty Hate Machine is much more accessible but has a dated quality; some of the effects sound a bit token and cliché and don’t really fit with what the band moved onto later.\r\nWith Teeth however is a straight forward, rocking, down and dirty album of squeaks, screams and awesome, awesome drumming. NIN perfected big echoy drums years ago, but Dave Grohl shows up to contribute his talents and the results are fantastic. “The Collector” has a powerful drum intro while “Y’know What You Are?” has some pounding thrash beats powering it forward.\r\n“Only” is as close as NIN ever got to a pop song, with a catchy beat and a beast of a hook; “There is no you there is only me!”. “The Hand That Feeds” is a good place to start too. “Right Where It Belongs” is a hauntingly slow paced moment of quite in the barrage of all mighty noise.\r\nOverall the album is a quite clear about recovering from an addiction but this being NIN this is twisted into a “is everything what it appears to be?” Matrix-esque muddle. It’s not going to shatter your brain cells or anything but it will stay in the back of your mind for quite some time.\r\nWith Teeth is a hell of an album and if you like it I strongly recommend digging up his/their other stuff as the quality is pretty consistent. Today Trent is winning Oscars for some stellar soundtracks, check out this collab with Karen O for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, it’s pretty damn awesome.\r\nMore recommendations at http://captainspacker.blogspot.com/
