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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

A real (good) mixed bag. Since most of the songs have a similar sound/structure, subjectivity comes into play a lot more than usual.

It's a fun album, but some songs are more memorable than others

"El camino" mi è piaciuto più degli altri dischi dei Black Keys che conosco per una questione di piccoli dettagli, come una vittoria al fotofinish. Qualche canzone un po' più bella della loro media ( "Sister" ad esempio ), l'esuberanza sempre velata di malinconia un po' più marcata; non trovo siano niente di speciale ma almeno apprezzabili, quello si.

It goes downhill fast, but for all I care, it has some of the best Alt Rock tracks ever made. Love it.

El Camino is The Black Keys best album, and its a good one. With lots of really good songs, and few weak ones it about as good an album as you could ask for from The Black Keys. However, I don't think Th Black Keys are a spectacular band, so, while this is likely the best they'll ever achieve, it's not an all time great. A really good album, but nothing more.

While there are some solid songs on here, I feel this was the beginning of their decline, but only so slightly.

El Camino is a great and fun album. It's what you expect to hear from the band after Attack & Release and Brothers, however I don't think that it's as good as those other two mainly because I feel most of the songs here sound the same and the band doesn't expand to new ground, which isn't necessarily a bad thing... but it isn't a great thing either. It left me wanting more. I still dance to Lonely Boy though
