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 84.2/100, a mean average of 82.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Obviously a very good, very varied album. Very creative use of percussion sounds too. It's just not my type of thing. I loved the final song though.

I'm not the biggest fan of electronic music for some reason but I really enjoyed this album. I mostly enjoyed the non-electronic songs but I still like all of the other songs. The songwriting is pretty great on every song and it's showcased best on my (and BEA's) favorites "Someone Great", "All My Friends" and "New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down". "All My Friends" in particular struck a chord with me. This album seems like it was made for someone in their 30s so maybe I'll grow to appreciate it even more eventually.

Just getting a listen of this band and this album - thanks to shout outs on this website else I would never have come their way.
It is a great album from first listen for me. I am hearing loads of influences in there. The Bowie Eno reference I heard, on occasion his vocals are even Bowie Berlin era.
But I also hear Talking Heads in the more funky moments, even a bit of Prince in the music. I also hear the Killers, The Strokes, amongst others. It is their talent to bring all these sounds together into a coherent album and sound.
If the electro pop tunes had been out in the 80's they would have smashed anything then.
I like songs that build up and can be happy to have a repetitive droning sound or hook whilst the rest of the songs builds layer after layer.

LCD is surely one of the most Rock'n'Roll bands of electronic music. James Murphy is one of my favorite singers of the last decades. If the first eponymous opus released in 2004 was not perfectly finalized despite the undeniable qualities, "Sound Of Silver" marks an essential step for LCD Soundsystem, but especially for the advent of electro-rock. Murphy, the most charismatic leader in recent years, pays homage to his idols, Brian Eno and David Bowie, while keeping a modern and never heard sound. Whether the fantastic tribulations of an epic "All My Friends", the haunting melody of a "Someone Great" or the punk fury of an "American Scum", James Murphy offers his finest offering to the music he love so much, giving a major album from the beginning of the 21st century, new modern musical reference, physical link between art and popular.

10/10

Best track: "All My Friends"

Sound of Silver might just be the best dance album of the decade. It's ridiculous just how good All My Friends is
