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 25% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.3/100, a mean average of 73.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.8.

Nothing particularly inventive or new from Cage the Elephant but definitely very fun and very listenable.

Certainly not their best effort musically. A lot of the songs here feel a bit bland with a few exceptions. The lyrics, however, are outstanding, they save this album for me. You can tell Matt is really going through some shit on this album. Worth a couple of listens, but isn't extremely memorable for them

Who could have imagined that Cage The Elephant could reach gigantic popularity? Indeed, three and a half years ago, the radiofriendly band of Bowling Green had finally achieved consecration with their fourth album "Tell Me I'm Pretty". And for the first time, they won a Grammy for best rock album if that's not good. In 2019, they return in pretty good shape with their successor entitled "Social Cues". With "Social Cues", Cage The Elephant signs his most heteroclite record of their discography but also one of the most finalized. Proving that they are able to renew themselves as they wish, the radiofriendly band manages to mix past, present and future while supporting the author's personal texts, resulting in a rather satisfying but quite forgettable set.

There is not much to say actually, great album with great songs from them again as always. Cage the elephant still have their own precious unique style in this you can hear and feel it.
Favourite tracks: Broken Boy, Black Madonna, Skin and Bones, House of Glass, Tokyo Smoke

I was kind of worried about this album to be honest, as Cage is one of my favourite bands, but I was really happy with this. I love how Cage the Elephant can have a different sound for every album but still sound like it belongs in their discography. It is vastly different from the lo-fi production that was Tell Me I'm Pretty and it is a change the band really needed. This would probably rank just under Melophobia (their best album) for me.

Favourite tracks: Black Madonna, Social Cues
