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 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Great album! Last two tracks are amazing!
Haven’t read the critics reviews but I’m now intrigued to read what their issue is with this album having read comments below. I’ve listened to the album over a dozen times now and it is a true return to form. Not that they have released any stinkers but this is a return to legendary rock status. It’s a progressive backtrack... if that oxymoron makes any sense...
Not sure I understand what the critics were saying.. This is really good stuff!
this album is something out of this world ... i'm serious ... i haven't heard a wonder like this in a long time ... i love it...
The critics can eat me...This album is terrific!
I was surprised. After all these years, finally a cool and casual album from the New Yorker Band. New Wave, Post-Punk and also some electronica. Catchy melodies and Julian's brilliant voice. This is absolutely worth listening to and I warmly recommend it.
A new Strokes album is always welcome especially now. Bad Decisions and Eternal Summer are my favorites so far. They are one of the few bands I’ve thoroughly enjoyed in the past 20 years.
One of the best Strokes album! Sounded really refreshing, each track is great.
I don't think I've ever seen a larger disparity between the critics' and audiences' reaction to an album as for this one. Everyone seems to be loving the album except the music critics and honestly, this is the victory The Strokes deserved. For a band who were put on the highest pedestal by the critics before they even really started the career, their whole discography since Is This It has felt like an attempt to gain that acclaim back, and they kept failing to impress them, and along the way, their fans.
But this album is a goddamn beast! a spectacle worth the 7 year wait, a redemption arc for one of the biggest band of the indie rock era; and I am almost glad that the critics are shitting on this obvious masterpiece, since now majority of their GP audience can finally tear the band's image away from their critique. And maybe this will help The Strokes themselves become more liberated from the Is This It era. Because, honestly, I was getting real tired of reading about how "they used to be so good in their first two albums" in literally every article about the band thereafter (and that one The National song).
I absolutely adore this album, and I cant wait to scream "drums please Fab" when they finally start performing it live. Fuck the critics man. This is the Strokes' year.
this new album by the Strokes is one of the best albums ever... it's huge ... yes, it's rock ... sorry...
