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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.2.

9.0/10 -Solid album that has some weak middle tracks when played individually, but the album comes together nicely when everything is played together.

Favorite- A Certain Romance (9.7/10)
Least Favorite- Riot Van (7.5/10)

I wanted to say something about the lyrical content too. Obnoxious would be the right word. Even '50s soul or rock 'n' roll singers mention women less, and the lack of soul and fun makes it really sound creepy and objectifying. But it's okay if you refer to a statement by Sokrates along the way, right? Disgusting really, and I listen to Future. Just own your shit. If you're gonna be toxic, be honest about it. And then the self-pitying songs about the only issues these spoiled kids like them face in life: the fact that they drink without being the proper age (how badass) and the police don't like that, and "dumb grown-ups" who say what they should do with their lives. Disgusting, I say it again. Cringy, I'd add. Which mature person would write about that?

This album is obnoxious and just a bunch of noise. Very generic sound. I don’t understand the praise and high ranking.

A classic alternative rock record. If I had to choose, I would say this is the most representative album of the sound of the 2000s.

Simply great, refreshing rock, and I particularly like Alex Turner’s voice and songwriting that makes the band so recognizable.

Standout tracks: I Bet You Look on the Dancefloor, Mardy Bum, When the Sun Goes Down, A Certain Romance
Personal favourite: From the Ritz to the Rubble

Iconic, the reason Arctic Monkeys are the first thing that comes up when you google 'indie rock bands'
