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 91.9/100, a mean average of 89.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

It’s good, but massively overrated and NOT the greatest album of all time.

Is it the greatest of all time ? I'm not sure . But it certainly is one of the best albums ever made and still sounds incredible all these years later , it probably even sounds better in 2023 than it did on release .

El cumulo de emociones que produce este álbum es indescriptible. Por momentos mantiene la fuerza hasta el punto de querer arrojarlo todo y por otros, da esa sensación de aislamiento y depresión, las letras potencian todas esas sensaciones, siendo introspectivas y con un fuerte mensaje Social-político. Es la cúspide del "Rock Alternativo".

English review:
The accumulation of emotions that this album produces is indescribable. At times it maintains strength to the point of wanting to throw it all overboard and at others it gives that feeling of isolation and depression, the lyrics enhance all those feelings, being introspective and with a strong political-social message. It is the pinnacle of "alternative rock."

GREATEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME ! The production is A1, honestly, i don’t think there will ever be a better album. Thom Yorke’s voice is insane and so ripe in this album it’s orgasmic. I also think the instrumentals go insane. Only a (few) geniuses could have wrote this album. And it was Radiohead (and Nigel Godrich). If this album were a religion, i’d be on my knees every damn second.

Radiohead elevate themselves from great to incredible with a run of 7 of the best songs of all time, 3 just really great songs and 1 hauntingly poignant robotically spoken interlude track. Thom Yorke delivers fantastic vocals over masterfully crafted instrumentals with near-perfect mixing, pacing, tracklisting and themes about our lives that will remain relevant for many years to come, just as they have for the 25 years since this album's release.
Top 3 tracks: Paranoid Android, No Surprises, Exit Music (For a Film)

Although not my favourite album ever, it gets very close - from the sampling of the drums on 'Airbag' to the closing triangle on 'The Tourist', this album is true perfection.

Masterpiece. The first time I listened to this album I knew it was great. But I didn't really get it, since I barely hadn't listened to any rock before, even less art rock, at least in a thoughtful way.

A flawless album to say the least, truly ahead of their time when it was released. A top 10 for sure when talking greatest albums of all time, but it definitely does not deserve the number one spot. To be ranked over dark side of the moon and Sgt. peppers, is absolutely absurd
