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 mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

The culmination of all their sounds, but so tightly constructed with some top-notch vocal deliveries from Casablancas. It seems like he's delivering with his effortless cool vibe as always, but is now showing shades of vulnerability in his lyrics, adding another layer to the overall music: regret, guilt, unrequited love, and loneliness. The instrumentation is tight as always.

At first I didn't care all that much about it, I found the singles to be ok, but I wasn't exactly excited for it. But once I heard it, it clicked with me. I loved it and replayed it a few times. All the tracks are solid, something that didn't happen since Is This It. For me, The New Abnormal is competing with Room On fire for the second place in The Strokes discography. The vibe is unique, it feels refreshing and focused. Nothing feels like filler. Just an outstanding piece of music.

Mejor discos de The Strokes desde el Is this it, se adaptan a un sonido más actual sin sacrificar su amor por lo retro, Julián Casablancas destaca vocalmente, en una faceta no tan explotada antes, dejando de lado el procesamiento exagerado de su voz, y tocando fibras sensibles de los oyentes con melodías que llegan al alma. Sin duda de los más destacable y parte de la escencia de The Strokes son las guitarras, y en este disco tenemos todo una historia de amor entre las dos guitarras dónde nos deleitan en un sin cesar de preguntas y respuestas que nos demuestran que quienes saben de guitarras en la segunda década de este milenio, son los mismos que las trajeron de vuelta a inicio de este.

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...
