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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

This is my first exposure to Tool and I'm sure it won't be the last. I enjoyed this album a lot but it's a bit overlong. Some of the instrumental breaks are too drawn out and the "short" tracks (on the Spotify tracklist) don't serve much of a purpose for me. The drums are incredible and the electric guitar is pretty great too. The vocals are fine and the lyrics are corny at times but not awful.

Tool albums are not made for instant gratification (although fans like myself still get that with a new release). As expected, my appreciation for Fear Inoculum is only growing. Seeing them play most of the album live has accelerated that even more.

Take with a grain of salt the early reviews of this album as they should only be seen as interim reviews.
It’s truly epic and I absolutely love the ‘front-man’ focus on Carey.

Often a long wait for a highly anticipated album ends in disappointment but not here , 'Fear Inoculum' is pretty amazing that rewards multiple listens

The thinking mans metal band ? You betcha its got poly-rhythms , strange time signatures , over lays , complex drum sequences and lyrics that will take years to decipher

One of 2019's very best albums

Oh and to that idiot "The Needle Drop"music reviewer on YouTube who gave this album a scathing review - your wrong ! (Never did like that guy )

You know what, it's a Tool album. If you've never liked them, you probably won't like this. If you like them, this will fill your head with new Tool earworms. It's good enough, I think.

I don't understand the hate this album's getting. Sure it's a little long and not incredibly exciting right off the bat, but if you take the time to sit and listen you realize the build ups are truly epic. Every one of the songs builds up to an amazing crescendo, and the album does the same, ending on 7empest which is incredibly good. The interludes are the weak part of the album, but I definetly don't mind them and they are interesting.
