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 81.1/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Like the 1970s and the future had a cute little French baby, full of style and pep.

Really enjoyable album. All I Need is phenomenal, the instrumentals Ce Matin La and La Femme D'Argent are superb, and there a couple of decent pop songs too (Sexy Boy and Kelly Watch The Stars).

This album is phenomenal. The sonic depth present on each track is staggering and makes listening again and again thoroughly enjoyable as you pick out new parts that you love. You definitely will need multiple listens as well because on first listen this album just seems alright but then once you properly explore it and understand what the artist is doing you realise how good this record truly is. There are no tracks which deviate from the atmosphere created and every track is in the range of good to outstanding. Sonically, it really challenges the boundaries of the electronica genre and sometimes goes beyond into a different and new genre altogether. The control and mastery this artist has over sound is nothing short of exceptional. On the other hand, I can see the arguments that it is a bit slow and at times repetitive and can understand why people may not enjoy it due to that. On the whole, this record is worth listening to and is one of the most original and unique releases I have ever heard.

For an electronica album, this sounds awfully like soft rock. The balance between the two genres is perfect, however, and bears repeated listening. It is a testament to the staying power of this LP that it was released in 1998 yet sounds as fresh today as it did upon release. Part of that is the way the band have channelled the classic songwriters of the Brill Building pop behemoth, sounding like these tracks could have been written for (or by) Carol King in an alternate dimension. It’s easy listening, but without the negative connotations that that sometimes carries. A brilliant album.
High Points: La Femme D’Argent; Sexy Boy ; Talisman ; Remember

One of the most ear-pleasing albums. You can hear it multiple times repeatedly without ever getting bored.

A difficult album to describe but incredibly relaxing yet still has a dance vibe to it. High reccomendation for some chillout electronic music. One of the best records of 1998.

Best song(s): "La Femme D'Argent" "Sexy Boy" "All I Need" "Kelly Watch the Stars" "You Make it Easy" "Le Voyage de Pénélope"

Moon Safari is somewhere in between Discovery and Music Has the Right to Children. Not great, but really relaxing.

A very chill album that can destress the tensest shoulders. Not every track is stellar but each one maintains the cool atmosphere and never deviates too much. For some people, this might make the album seem a bit monotonous...but as David Byrne once said, "Some people don't know shit about the Air."
