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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.1/100, a mean average of 72.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

I read one of those “Every Arctic Monkeys’s Album Ranked” lists recently and this particular list rated this album at numbero uno which is the kind of knee jerk hyperbole that grinds my gears. Folks this isn’t AM’s finest album, however it is better than good and far more interesting than the rock star sitting in his own filth vibes of Tranquility Base. ‘The Car’ has this intangible wonky charm about it that I cant quite put my finger on and is destined to only get better over time

as someone who appreciated the experimental qualities of TBHAC i find this album disappointing. The majority of songs don't have a satisfying conclusion building only to fizzle out, and holding back the standout tracks like "body paint", "big ideas "and "sculptures of anything goes".

The Car blows. There is almost nothing redeemable about this vapid waste of time despite all the instrumental
(and specifically not vocal or production) competency that went into it. It's like an efficient and well administrated waste water treatment site: you'd applaud it if you weren't held up with pinching your nose.

First listen was quite underwhelming, it took me a week to appreciate it as a whole by paying closer attention to the small details of each song. Production is amazing and aesthetic is very strong. Weirdly enough, to me it sounds like a combination of TBHC and AM. Not a bad album, it impressed me less than TBHC: I expected more highs but there is no genuinely bad song on it.

Sonically a continuation from the kind of sixties inspired chamber pop they conjured up on ‘TBH&C’, ‘The Car’ is expansive, mature and certainly a grower.

Not better than TBHC (most underrated album of the century), but still a pretty solid one.
Loved the strings and slight melancholy in it.
Arctic Monkeys been evolving so much, wonder what comes next.
This is a grower, I really recommend everyone listening to the album at least 3 times before putting a review.

Fav. songs:
The Car, Big Ideas, Sculptures of Anything Goes.

Better than their last album but not sure whether it's a grower or I should stick with the older stuff I love

Hovering somewhere vocally between the delivery of David Bowie and Nick Lowe, Alex Turner leads the Monkeys through another successful record. The songwriting (both musically and lyrically) on display here is immaculate, simultaneously implying minimalism while suggesting tremendous depth.

It's not the most varied selection of songs (the band simmers and never boils), but what's here can be heartily recommended to any fans of lush strings, smooth rhythms, and...well, the Arctic Monkeys. Give this one a few spins before final judgment.

Perfect balanced gorgeous work of art. That´s Arctic Monkeys in its finest expression. Working all together to take another evolution in its sound, evolving from where they left with Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino and creating something unique and authentic in this days were the important thing to many artists is to make a hit on tiktok. This album is an intimate one, probably the most beautiful Arctic Monkeys´ record. It´s an album perfect to listen to it alone while making the dinner or when you´re alone with your thoughts, and I´m sure it will grow on everyone. It is insanely good and I can´t expect for what will be their new sound in the next years. Long live Arctic Monkeys.
