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 has a Bayesian average rating of 63.4/100, a mean average of 61.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 61.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 24.2.

The unbearable lightness of dissonance and experimentation.

Pretty straight forward to sum this one up

It’s definitely not as terrible as the detractors claim and I’m a Beatles nut


It’s not as good as some critics declare (Pitchfork giving it 9.1 / 10 )

It’s simply Yoko Ono being Yoko Ono with John in the mix and on the cover

All up better than ok and definitely ahead of its time

i dont get how ppl from this site can so overpraise Radiohead yet bash on this one. You want experimental? well things wont get more experimental then in here. By the way i dont give a shit about Yoko or her music, but i dont like double standards - if "Ok, computer" is suppose to be the best album ever, and "Kid A" is the best album in 2000s, then by those standards this album should be in top 10 of all times.

Not terrible, definitely not great either lol. This made Trout Mask Replica much easier to listen to. Whatever you called this, I call this "proto-punk" because of the instrumentation and Yoko's screeching. Ringo's drumming is just fantastic.

Way more interesting than the Lennon/Plastic album. The highs are higher and the lows are lower, but if I had to chose between a mediocre, but consistent album and an album with a few amazing songs, for me the answer seems rather obvious.

Holy shit this album is fucking rad. Way better than anything the Beatles ever did.

It's not THAT bad. More boring than repulsive. For all the fuss that's made over Yoko's vocal self-flagellations, they're pretty harmless. Put in the context of the German experimentalism of the day and the more radical elements of psychedelia, they aren't even that remarkable (unless you consider the feminist angle). It's the album's go-nowhere repetitiveness that bothered me the most. I rather like the rhythm section. You got Ringo's punchy drums, Voorman's goofy-in-a-fun-way basslines and Lennon's caustic (though a little understated on this album) guitar. But none of these songs do much with them.

What a terrible album. I have never heard anything less musical than Why Not. The wailing and screaming isn't the least bit artistic. Yoko Ono is a knob.

I'm going to go listen to The Soft Bulletin to redeem myself.
