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 82.2/100, a mean average of 80.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

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.

It's no Is This It or Room on Fire, but not many albums are. I think it strikes a good balance between their newer stuff and their old sound. Not going to become a part of my regular rotation, but I definitely like it more on relisten.
