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 Bayesian average rating of 82.3/100, a mean average of 80.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.2.

I think this is their best, unfortunately it sounds too much like (almost)all their previous works.

Really solid album, truly the best of 2020 with no big competition for me. I love Ode To The Mets and overall tune of the album is great.

When this originally came out, I would've been totally against it being the best album of 2020, but as time has gone on, I've really liked it more and more. It has definitely become a modern classic. Curiously enough, my least preferred song from the album is "Bad Decisions", lol, I just can't listen to it without thinking about "Dancing With Myself".

I don't see the album as being anything special. No real standout tracks. my favourites are Bad Decisions and At The Door but overall the album was a bit of a damp squib for me after 7 years of waiting for a new Strokes album. Bit overrated for me.

Sounds very much like The Strokes, while adding in some synth sounds straight out of the 80s. This band knows how to do rhythm and how to space out its sound.

This record manages to be fun and sound grown up at the same time.

Para ser sincero, solo he escuchado Is This It?, y The New Abnormal claramente no está a la altura de ese album histórico, pero lo he disfrutado de igual manera. Mi favorita ha sido The Adults are Talking. De repente sea el 2do mejor album de The Strokes y lo digo por las críticas que veo porque como menciono no he escuchado otro más. Todavía tocan bien el rock alternativo y no me puedo quejar de su sonido. Está buenardo. Selfless y Ode to the Mets serían mis otras 2 preferidas.

This is the album that we needed from the Strokes. Pretty solid top to bottom.
