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 84.1/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Incredible production and fully realised ideas make this a must listen. The electronic Talking Heads ode has enough of it's own substance to stand apart from the influences that spawned it.
There are some outstanding moments on here including some of their best ever songs but there is also some mediocre tracks that don't really do anything for the record at all. This leads to an inconsistent and frustrating listen as you can clearly see how excellent they are but they just can't maintain it the whole way through. With that being said, the record is still elite with there being more great moments than average ones. An example of this is Someone Great which is not only the best song on here but it is also one of the greatest songs of all time. I almost instantly made an emotional connection to the song when I first heard it and I do think this is the case for most people who listen to it. This phenomenal track along with 4 or 5 more hold this record at a high level no matter how badly songs like the title track want to drag it down. Overall, another great album from LCD Soundsystem that does get over rated because of a few outstanding moments but it still has plenty of quality to love on here.
I like the rhythmic electronic rock most tracks have to offer. Reminded me of the Chemical Brothers. Not one that I'd have on high rotation but very enjoyable every time I do pull it out for a listen
A pretty good dance album, but not one that strikes my fancy. Basically all the songs but All My Friends and New York are totally uninteresting to me. New York is a good song, but totally out of place in the album.
All My Friends deserves an entire review on its own. It is totally out of place on this album. Out of place not just in style, instrumentation, mood, but also in quality. All My Friends is one of the best songs ever made. It is nostalgic and bittersweet and is exactly what every song should be. Innovative, this song uses some of the most simple yet heartfelt instrumentation of any song. It reminds me a lot of my favorite song of all time, Age Of Consent. Technically, both songs fit into the synthpop and postpunk genres but lean on the postpunk a little more. Both are deeply heartfelt songs tackling loneliness. both feel like they could be the opening song to the greatest film of all time. Both allow one to lie in bed and look up at the ceiling as if it was the night sky and think of better times. Both are longing, but still have the great energy that a song like that should have. They aren't dull and slow. They aren't impersonal and emotionless. They are perfect. All My Friends is perfect. The rest of this album.... not so much
Spiritual descendants of Bowie. Fully capable of tendering a message over slow, sparse music as well as chaotic quasi-electronic dance tracks.
“New York I Love You” is one of the great takedown songs of all time. Savage.
The faster songs are entertaining, occasionally becoming too repetitive in the lyrics.
Just the type of music that fills the world, nothing genuine or original. Now I know what makes the critiques to love this kind of stuff, you must have a bad voice, nil guitar or instrument solos, and no decent melodies. New Wave and punky vibes are really not my jam.
1,000 albums you must hear before you die brought me here, and I was not disappointed.
Sin ser fan de la música electrónica, hay que reconocer que es un disco relativamente entretenido
Muito bom... Álbum que não cansa de ouvir!
- North American Scum
- All My Friends
- Us V Them
- New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down
