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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

Se fosse lançada hoje ainda seria tendência. Espetacular aproximação do rock com o eletrônico e o soul.

A decent album full of good songs and catchy riffs, I'm doubtful that it deserves to be anywhere near the top 200, but music is after all subjective. The problem comes with the lack of brevity. Their are several songs that clock in around the seven minute mark, often with the repetition of a single idea. This includes the obnoxiously long Come Together.
Bonafini is right that its deepest sentiment is 'we wanna get high and not care' but I don't think thats the point. It's an album that's worth a listen, but don't be afraid to skip the occassional minute or two in a song, chances are you won't miss a thing.

Without that Dub Symphony it would be a 10/10 for me, even with it´s repetion on some songs.

What a classic album , who would have thought Bobby Gillespie could put this together following his departure from Jesus and Mary Chain . This album hooks you from opening bars of Movin' On Up and never lets up . Loaded is one of the best songs of all time , yes of all time and to this day I still find it incredible after hundreds / thousands of listens .I love this album like a dear friend .

Primal Scream fuse together a diverse range of genres to create one big, juicy masterwork. "Screamadelica" is melodic, trippy, jazzy, worldly and innovative throughout. It's downtempo and yet it manages to radiate heat. Repetition throughout its long compositions serve purpose; these kaleidoscopic tracks draw you in and make you never want to leave. A wonderful record.
