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 Bayesian average rating of 83.1/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

An energetic debut that captivates the listener pretty much as soon as they put it on. The passion present on here is extremely impressive with every song being infectious and accessible to pretty much anyone. This is primarily due to the hooks and the choruses which are simply fantastic. The best example is the obvious huge hit that is I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor. There is a lot more to this album than this song however with the likes of Dancing Shoes and The View From The Afternoon always managing to capture my interest. The record is overflowing with charm and character which is what makes it so lovable and has caused millions of people to become completely obsessed with this group and it is not difficult to see why. Overall, one of the most energetic and relatable debuts that has loads of memorable moments to keep you coming back time and time again.
Arctic Monkeys hace su debut con este album lleno de energía, la forma en que se complementan las 2 guitarras, la fuerza y el ímpetu de Matt Helders en la batería, así como la voz de Alex Turner, hacen de "Whatever people say i am that's what i'm not" un emblema del Indie rock. Su sonido "Garage Rock" me hace sentir mas joven.
Todas las canciones, aquí, son buenas pero solo por destacar algunas; "A certain romance", "Mardy Bum" y "when the sun goes down".
Arctic Monkeys make their debut with this album full of energy, the way the 2 guitars complement each other, the strength and impetus of Matt Helders on drums, as well as the voice of Alex Turner, make "Whatever people say i am that's what i'm not" an emblem of Indie rock. Their "Garage Rock" sound makes me feel younger.
All the songs here are good but just to highlight a few; "A Certain Romance", "Mardy Boom" and "When the Sun Goes Down".
The sequencing on this album is great. No track is a second too long or short. Every time a new track opens, I am immediately excited.
An album I hold very dearly to my heart as one my first ever loves of music. In terms of British indie music this is as good as it gets in the 21st century. Full of heart, energy and unbridled joy it stands the test of time as kids get older in to their late teens and experience the exact same moments.
As an old fart, this is Still not my music, but I respect the energy. The last track was the best. #955 in 1001 Albums listening project(2021 ed.) (Positive)
What a way to announce yourselves. Everyone of a certain age remembers in 2005 when the video for I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor appeared. The album continues on in the same light. Some great lyrics on the album, my picks being "Yeah I'd love to tell you all my problem, you're not from New York City you're from Rotherham" and "His bird said it's amazing though so all that's left, is the proof that love's not only blind but deaf" from Fake Tales of San Francisco. Cheeky, unmistakably British lines throughout this excellent album. My highlights are I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor, When The Sun Goes Down, Mardy Bum and A Certain Romance.
Pretty close to the perfect representation of what a rock record should be: youthful cheekiness and recklessness, fueled by a loud and driving sound. I love the clever turns of phrase that pop up when least expected (I doubt she does receipts).
A couple songs drag in spots, but that’s minor criticism. This is a fun and great album.
Working class lads, going on night-outs in the early noughties.
Very true to life lyrics, mundane subjects put through the prism of youth energy
If you are looking for profound statements on society it might be better looking elsewhere, however if you are looking for a fun, dirty, lager infused, trying to pull at the bar you cant go wrong with this.
What a debut!
The fact that this was a debut was a really terrific indicator of things to come from these guys. Really fun album that puts the AM sound on display.
