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 82.5/100, a mean average of 80.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

Their best job since Room on Fire… Julian Casablancas' vocal performance is incredible, he makes this album feel too personal. The guitars keep their alternative sound but the use of synthesizers gives it a new wave air.
Su mejor trabajo desde Room on Fire… la interpretación vocal de Julian Casablancas es increíble, hace que este álbum se sienta muy personal. Las guitarras siguen manteniendo su sonido alternativo pero el uso de sintetizadores le da un aire new wave.
Un album consistente, donde la calidad de cada una de las canciones se mantiene, destacando "The Adults Are Talking" y "Eternal Summer"
This record kicks off with one of the best opening tracks in a long time in the form of The Adults Are Talking which perfectly prepares us for what we are about to experience. The music is like the classic Strokes albums but with a modern and mature twist that only adds to the appeal of it. Instrumentally it is a very strong release with each member playing a key role in creating the new sound. Their hooks are still just as impressive as every song could easily end up getting stuck in your head with how infectious they all are. The production is brilliant and the whole record feels compact and like all the songs are working towards the same end goal. This leads to a cohesive and engaging experience for us to enjoy. Furthermore, I have to give credit for how good the vocal still is with it giving the record such an important edge to it. Overall, a phenomenal comeback album from The Strokes that shows their high standards with this contending with their debut to be their best ever record.
In 2020, it is amazing to me that The Strokes could create an album rivalling their debut that sounds absolutely and entirely different to said debut. Casablancas' voice has aged delightfully and he expresses his range across the album with high notes, low notes, and all kinds of vocal styles across 9 tracks. The warm sound of the album makes it nostalgic and it is created by some of the best technical quality, through Rick Rubin's mixing, that I have ever heard.
Top 3 tracks: Ode To The Mets, At The Door, Why Are Sundays So Depressing
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".
Acertaram na veia, nessa!!! Muito foda!

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.
