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 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.5/100, a mean average of 74.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Very good synth-disco jam, only hindered by the spoken-word "dj" nonsense

aggressively mediocre. 80s nostalgia on steroids.

A good album, a lot of good songs but with not much high lights. Also, I didn't get the radio concept.

High lights:
Out Of Time 8/10
Is There Someone Else? 8/10
I Heard You're Married 8/10
Less Than Zero 8/10

I came in to this album expecting a mediocre experience, but I was still disappointed. It was extremely hard to get through. Not because it sounded bad, but because it was so so boring and uninspiring to listen to.
The production on this thing was amazing, pretty much the whole way through, despite from some questionable vocal effects, like on Gasoline (which for sure was the low point of the album). However, there’s very long between the highs on the album, especially on the second part of the album, which was such a drag and just one long snooze fest.
The lyrics on this thing were likewise very mediocre, and at times pretty bad.
I did not understand the point of the features. Both Tyler and Lil Wayne sounded super out of place in on their features, and Liz Wayne’s was terrible.
I kinda enjoyed the whole radio theme, besides on Every Angel is Terrifying (what was he thinking with that song??) and I think that Jim Carrey was a great choice of narrator, although I was somewhat skeptical when I first heard he was going to be on this thing.

I think it's a more focused After Hours. Those who liked the predecessor's abstract and ambiance may not enjoy this but I do

The cover is... ugh. The music is Abel giving the radio more of the same, which is to say the B sides from After Hours. It's not bad, but apart from a few highlights (which don't reach the same highs as the best stuff from After Hours), it's not that great. A decent retro synthpop/synthwave record, worth a listen. The interludes discussing commercialism were funny because this is a pretty obvious try to bank on the success of After Hours, which isn't a bad thing in and of itself, but it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. The interludes were bad in the first place, this just makes them less bearable. Best songs: Take My Breath (this extended version is so much better than the single), Less Than Zero, Out of Time, I Heard You're Married.
