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 78.3/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Solid enough debut for LCD Soundsystem, with a few really great songs. They would do much better in their subsequent material, though.
Only album I can vaguely call danceable or enjoyable. Still though, don't play in front of the hoes... or anyone with a feeling for rhythm. The 808 cowbell pattern done with a real cowbell is the most hipster and cringy thing I have ever encountered in my life. And to add to the shameless rip-offs of this band: "Never as Tired as when I'm Waking Up" is too similar to "Dear Prudence" by The Beatles. Yeah I know everyone steals and it's probably an hommage, but when I really go like "hey that sounds like" and immediately find where I know it from is a clear line for me. The bass line at the end and guitar outro are also extremely beatle-esque, they've added nothing of their own to that song.
A promising start. Solid work.
Echoing the thought that this is James' most forgettable effort, but it had a massive impact. Losing My Edge in conjuncture with "Echoes" basically brought dance-punk back from the dead and that's no small feat; it takes a record of certain quality to bring a whole genre back and this can certainly stand up to that.
Their later albums are much better, but this is a solid start
One huge, overwhelming collection of really good dance music. May be appreciated more in chunks, but it's nonetheless definitely worth listening to.
The first LCD album is a tremendous explosion, and what shines through the most is how much James Murphy fucking loves music.
A good album just a bit too long with a few misteps imo. I own it and enjoy it from time to time. Great band ! MEZ
The singles are good, good, good, but the rest of it is so-so-so.
Good album... with some great songs.
I wouldn't call it a dance record, it has some dance elements but this is not a dance record. Critics name this a "Dance music' 'cause the rhythm its at the front and the repeated tempo and pulse, but I think is a lazy way to define gender.
I hear post punk, electronica, noise, experimental, synth pop.
