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 85.8/100, a mean average of 84.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

I have spent the last week just obsessively listening to this album over and over. Cannot get enough of it. Went from thinking it is an above-average album to a perfect one. And that’s what I’ll stick with.
Lo siento por quienes la consideran overrated, pero a mí sí me parece una maravilla de album. Lo escuché por primera vez hace unos 8 meses y quizá hubiera dicho que es overrated, pero desde entonces lo escuché unas 30 veces y me creció un cariño tremendo al album. Cuando salía al super lo escuchaba, cuando jugaba con los panas among us, o 270, y tanto así que es uno de los pocos que al escucharlo por primera vez en los últimos meses me han quedado grabadas cada una de las canciones.
Mis tres favoritas son Someday, Last Nite e Is This It?. Desearía que no censuraran la portada en este sitio web para ver la carátula de unos de los mejores debut albums de todos los tiempos, pero entiendo que es por cuestión de nudismo. En fin, la voz de Julian Casablancas creo que le da el toque y no hubiese sido lo mismo si otro fuese el cantante de The Strokes. La música no para de hacerme rockear. Actualmente lo coloco en mi top 10 de albums favoritos.
really overrated. just an ordinary (not bad) post punk revival album (and band) for teenagers.
Overrated but still a good album
While I was growing up, this had always been in the shadow of Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. But it seems to me that his aged so much better.
Pour un premier album, c'est une franche réussite. Même si ce n'est pas mon préféré, ça reste du grand Strokes
very, very, very good songwriting. Some sections are boring, and some section have subpar mixing in relation to the Lo-fi vocals. Besides that, very fun, very good album.
I don't get the hype, Someday is the best track, the rest are good or OK.
Legendary record. Took me a while to get into them, I was introduced to them in high school like 10 years ago. I dig them a lot more now than I did back then, but this album in particular is something amazing.
Revolucionário... Deu o caminho do rock comercial dos anos 2000 ao simplificar seu som.
