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 89.6/100, a mean average of 87.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

I'd argue this album is more accessible than OK Computer and Kid A as the sounds aren't quite as jarring on this at first listen than on the other two records mentioned. However, what makes it so great is how well the tracks complement each other when listening from start to finish, yet each one is very unique in it's own right.

The performances on this from each member of the group are world-class too which helps make it a truly essential listen for people wanting to hear great musicianship.

A unique and interesting listen that is consistent throughout the whole run time. The atmosphere they create on here is excellent with it being maintained for the duration which makes for a consistent and fulfilling listen. They are also instrumentally diverse on here and there is a lot to look out for when you revisit as their ability to layer their music is fantastic. Lyrically, it is strong as well with them looking into several interesting themes. The peak of this album for me is the outstanding Weird Fishes/ Arpeggi and Jigsaw Falling Into Place with the latter being one of my favourite Radiohead songs. Overall, a solid and cohesive record that is a must listen for any fan of music.

Rivals OK computer for me. The recording and production of this album are absolutely out of this world. With headphones almost nothing out there sounds better produced and recorded than this. The songwriting is also quite consistently brilliant. The songs are quite distinct but each song sounds like it belongs in this album specifically. I also appreciate that its the one Radiohead album that isn't so depressing. It has a more bittersweet, romantic tone.

Too many good songs to list. Reckoner definitely stands out as one of their best songs ever though.

In Rainbows is a sonic masterpiece and one of the most sensational headphones albums I can reference.

I’m enthralled by nearly every second of this blissfully quirky cornerstone of 21st Century rock.

Radiohead pick up their masterful touch after the decent Hail To The Thief with a collection of 10 beautiful tracks expressing a range of emotions from confusion and intensity in Bodysnatchers to leaving behind a message after death in Videotape. The more loose and relaxed form of rock approached by Radiohead in this album allows for stunning soundscapes created with more of a focus on guitar than electronic elements.
Top 3 tracks: Nude, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, Jigsaw Falling Into Place
