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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Despite seemingly carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, MA feels like a smaller and more subdued album compared to Art Angels.
A late 90's state of mind is heavily noticeable, not only with the echoed-out breathy vocals and muffled-but-heavy guitars prevelant on the second half, but also in it's sense of hazy doom and resolutely poker-faced symbolism. While the first half may have the "hits", in many ways I prefer the more massaged-out "We Appreciate Power"-style second mainly because it feels more interconnected and she actually seems to be having some geniune fun with the songs as well. However, there's just no denying there's a sense of whiffed oppurtunity despite nearly all of the songs being consistently easy on the ears (though nothing I would call outstanding either- those waiting for a "Realiti", "Vanessa" or "Oblivion"-like game-changer are sure to be dissapointed), and a major suspicion that there's a key middle and penultimate track missing from the picture that would've given it a fuller and more cohesive sound overall. A few listens in I'm not much clearer on what's the overlying message here, other than humans continuously devouring the planet and themselves=BAD.
So, donno, can't really call this a misfire since there wasn't anything here I particularly disliked, but the final impact was pretty minimal to *ahem* say the least. Maybe there's a weirder version out there somewhere, or we'll just have to wait till next time when she can get a bit riskier- or clearer in what she's actually trying to achieve. This is fine for now, I guess.
This album makes Art Angels look like an outlier in her discography cuz this feels like a closer sonic successor to Visions. It pulls back on a lot of the bombast of Art Angels, for better or worse, but its not necessarily a decline in quality. But that also makes it easier to explore, fall in love with, and then eventually outgrow the initial rush. This is my opinion so far. I can stil listen to Art Angels any day and it sounds how it did that first month i listened to (and died over) it, but I feel like Miss_Anthropocene won't have the same longevity.
Its still a solid album throughout though. Grimes is a crazy person and I love it! It takes a crazy person to make fucking 4aem (my favourite off the album), Darkseid and My Name Is Dark.
Bottom line: A great piece of work. Art Angels remains untouched.
Love this album
I don't know why, but I sort of expect more. Something more...wierd, out there. This is a nice album and it has nothing wrong with it. The expectation with Grimes is that she will do something absolutely unique.
Miss Anthropocene just feels like missed potential. The apocalyptic pantheon concept is too disconnected to work in the albums favor. A lot of the vocals feel overproduced to the point in which I have no idea what she is saying and it distracts from the rest of the song. I do think that instrumentally a lot of this album is solid especially on the folky "Delete forever". The hook on "Violence' is memorable and the doomsday feeling of "Before the Fever" also stands strong. These qualities save the album from being bad but they are not enough to make it good.
Dark synth-pop with an interesting message on AI and other futuristic scary stuff. It's not just the music that really gets me either, I honestly can't get enough of this aesthetic, take a look through the artwork made for this album it's pretty eye-catching stuff. People would argue that has nothing to do with the quality of the record but I beg to differ, It has everything to do with it. It really helps you get into the perfect mindset for listening to it.
Favorite Tracks- Delete Forever/ You'll Miss Me When I'm Not around
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Atmospheric and catchy, Miss Anthropocene is darker than her previous record, Art Angels, but comparable in quality. She utilizes a surprising variety of styles here to create an engaging and varied album. I wish that the fictional concept for this album, namely that of the Goddess of Climate Change, was more concrete. Regardless, the apocalyptic themes comes through well in the tone and lyrics of the album.
Favourite Songs: So Heavy I fell through the Earth, Delete Forever, You'll Miss Me When I'm Not Around
Least favourite: New Gods
Amazing, just like I expected. Much more aligned with the Art Angels sound but more consistent and a more enjoyable sound for me throughout. Violence is such an incredible jam, I just love it.
Much better than the leak I have to say. (I'll buy the album, don't worry!) It might be my favourite Grimes album, but we'll see after a few more listens. Very solid, top 5 of the year easily, maybe top 3
