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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.5/100, a mean average of 72.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

It took some time to come back to this album, but I really like it! I feel like it is dripping with sunshine and beach vibes, sort of like Weezer's White Album. The chimey guitars and appropriate background singing echo some aspects of Beach House's overall feel and can border psychedelic pop rock in the best way. Turner's songwriting digs deeper as he finds more complex ways to sing love songs, and Nick O'Malley's bass really shines on songs like Reckless Serenade, That's Where You're Wrong, and Love Is A Laserquest.

This album is not without it's duds, and the singles released are in company of some of the absolute worst Arctic Monkeys songs. Brick by Brick is abysmal, Black Treacle is a dumb metaphorical themed song, and Don't Sit Down is just a lazy excuse to fill 3 1/2 minutes. I think the band expanded on this uninspiring writing and sound to create AM (at least most of that album). But pretty much every other song on this album is either good or great! It doesn't quite meet the highs that the first two albums met, but it's pretty solid!

Best Tracks: Reckless Serenade, Piledriver Waltz, Love Is a Laserquest, That's Where You're Wrong

The back half of this album is light years better than the front half. "Brick by Brick", "Black Treacle", and "Don't Sit Down..." should be B-sides. Those songs really ushered the way for the anemic AM. But basically the rest of the album is a nice, summer-soaked dream-rock record! The closer is probably in my Top 10 for them and "Piledriver Waltz" is like the sad brother to "R U Mine?" with Turner's lyricism.

I really like this album ! I think it’s better than Humbug and at least on the same level as Favourite Worst Nightmare.

Brick by Brick is easily their worst track ever, but the rest of the record is pretty strong. In fact, I like all the other songs. The guitar doesn’t sound like usual, and I kinda like its new refreshing sound.

Standout tracks : She’s Thunderstorms, Don’t Sit Down Cause I’ve moved your chair, Suck It and See.
Personal favourite: The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala

The best AM album, although the middle is a bit off. Great opening and an amazing finish. Pretty much a masterpiece from Reckless Serenade to That´s Where You're Wrong

Favorite tracks
1) Suck it and See
2) She's Thunderstorms
3) Black Treacle/Piledriver Waltz

Don't let the Brick by Brick memes and a few bland alt rock tracks fool you this album has some pretty great Smiths esque jangly indie pop

"Do you still feel younger as you thought you would by now?
Darling have you started feeling old yet?"
Just like "AM" and "Favourite Worst Nightmare", "Suck It And See" has a place in my heart. I heard in a time in my life that I needed to hear these things, and It was just perfect, I have so many memories with these albums. They intruduced to a whole new world and I probaly wouldn't be in this site If It weren't by Artic Monkeys and that time I was so amazed by them.

Pretty underrated. Definitely not my least favourite AM album. It's a solid and simple pop rock sound compared to the previous and next album in their discography. Favourite tracks: 'Piledriver Waltz', 'Library Pictures' & 'Suck It And See'

Im shocked to see how many people dont like this album. I don't understand being an AM fan and not being in love with this record. I find I go back to the songs in this one more than WPSIATWIN, though clearly it doesnt hold up to that record from an album standpoint. The jangle-pop experiments they did with this record work so well for their style. I listen to songs like Hellcat, Reckless Serenade, and Piledriver Waltz and all I wish is that they wouldve done one more album in this vein. The uplifting melodies and lofty guitar work just does it for me. Its not without flaws but when its good, its very good.

Favorite songs: Hellcat Spangled Shalala, Reckless Serenade, Piledriver Waltz, Suck it and See
