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 82.6/100, a mean average of 81.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

This was the first album I ever obsessed over as a kid. Great production, fun hooks, and a surprising emotional variety compared to lots of electronic albums. Definitely Daft Punk’s best work and its praise is well deserved.

An improvement on Homework in every way. A shift of quality over quantity--although, it's still a hefty project. Richer songs, better grooves, and way more fun. Everything you might want from a Daft Punk album.

A solid dance album, but for an hour album there's bound to be some weak points - and these are situated in the middle of the track listing (Veridis Quo, Superheroes, Short Circuit). The first 4 tracks are awesome, it was always going to be downhill from there but Something About Us and Face to Face are great. Too Long is good but it is, as the name suggests, too long. My favourite tracks are Aerodynamic and Digital Love. Overall, enjoyable but if some of the weak tracks were cut I would consider it great.

Roughly half the songs have a hook that really works. Bouncy and catchy.

In this way, it’s a really good dance record. Just don’t go in expecting to get much more.

Very nostalgic I have to admit, but it sounds a bit dated.

El arranque del disco se disfruta muchísimo. Las cuatro o cinco primeras canciones. Luego baja algo el nivel, pero es muy disfrutable.

The opening set of songs on this album are just amazing and really blow me away every time I listen to this record. However, it really does go downhill after that and struggles to get back up to the height it started at. The later tracks just don't seem to grab me and don't really get stuck in your head due to the weak choruses and beats. The album is very cohesive though and has the same vibe and atmosphere throughout which makes the record fly by. It is also very enjoyable and easy to listen too even with its flaws. Overall, this is a great album but I do think it is overrated and just lacks substance to be considered one of the greatest records ever made.
