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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.3/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Nothing particularly special with the excpetion of the perfect "Take Me Out" easily the best track on the record and one of my favortie songs. A couple of catchy tracks that's definitely worth a listen.

Best songs: "Take Me Out" "Jacueline" "The Dark of the Matinee" "40'"

A brilliant collection of creative songs. This has the most variety of styles and with great hits like This Fire.

The band's best album. "Take Me Out" will forever be hailed as one of the greatest Indie songs of all time. The quality rarely drops (tracks 5 and 6 are the weakest), and the album is packed with essential Indie songs.

A fresh and utterly infectious album. Obviously hugely inspired Talking Heads, still, Franz Ferdinand's debut was a thoroughly enjoyable and original album. Unfortunately, considering all the excitement over their first record, they never really managed to follow it up. Still, this is a standout album of the 2000's.
