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 Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 78.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

Fun funk rock album to listen and by far their best, maybe songwriting isn't always top notch, but energy is here.

What makes an album so impressive for me is when you can go from track to track and the quality never drops off. This is not the case with this record. I find the music to jump between being very good, outstanding and for the majority of the record mediocre. This leads to an unengaged listen and an unbalanced experience for me. If they cut out the filler this would be an elite level album but it is there and it greatly elongates the release. This is not helped by how long the run time of the album is as it is tough to stay focused on the music when there isn't enough diversity or quality to make you want to pay attention. Overall, this isn't a bad album but it is over rated and I would argue that they have better albums in their discography.

A big part of the soundtrack of my adolescence. Love the bass, love the singing but especially adore the guitar playing, subtle and beautiful times, funky and amusing at others, keeping up with Flea is not an easy feat. Two geniuses: Frusciante and Flea.

At least the last 4 songs could have been omitted from this long album, easily. A very front-loaded product

Some great stuff on here - Under the Bridge, Give It Away, Breaking The Girl, I Could Have Lied and Power of Equality. But the rest of it is mostly filler, making it way too long. Not for me.

For me the bass playing and all round energy are what makes this album
