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 92.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

Uno dei dischi nella trinità della musica, capace di emozionare sia al primo ascolto sia un ascoltatore veterano. Un esempio di come il cambiamento nella musica sia qualcosa che è necessario nella vita di un'artista o di una band. La perfezione non si spreca...ogni dettaglio è curato al massimo con una resa sonora degna delle registrazioni odierne. Che dire...100/100

A sonically stunning album. Emotive and experimental. A true masterpiece.

It is a difficult job being the overall number 1 best ranked album and while this isn't my personal number 1, I am happy it is at the top of the sites chart. This album is a masterpiece and is one of the greatest gateway albums to get someone into experiencing the joy of listening to full albums. This is because it has a perfect balance of complex and accessibility. We are treated to some outstanding compositions from the band which completely blow me away whenever I listen to it. The depth and musical ability on display on songs like Paranoid Android, Airbag and Exit Music (For A Film) is simply breath taking. Radiohead force us to see why they are one of the greatest musical marvels of the modern generation and it is impossible to deny how good they are because of this album. We also get slower and more accessible songs like Karma Police and No Surprises with the latter being a truly beautiful track. All the songs work together brilliantly as well which creates a consistent listen that captivates anyone who hears it. Also, due to its high quality on every single song people who are just starting to get into albums will be enthralled by the capabilities this record demonstrates and will be hungry for more experiences like this. This brings me back to my original point and why I'm happy this is at number 1 as I do think if people look at this site and want to get into listening to full albums then this is the perfect one to introduce them into the hobby as this will have them coming back to explore both Radiohead's discography and the overall chart on here where they will fall in love with the albums they find. Overall, this album is phenomenal in everything it does from the lyrics to the vocal to the instrumentation to the atmosphere and I am very happy that it gets the praise it deserves.

The song quality is very high, although the exploration of the theme they were going for is less masterfully done. It opens with banger after banger, but declines in the second half. Still one of the best albums ever for sure.

Best Radiohead album in terms of individual songs. Somehow this feels like the end of a trilogy, and what comes after is the Radiohead I really love the most, but still, this album is perfectly crafted and it resonates with me unlike any other of their records. Karma Police is a perfect song.

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."
