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 84.8/100, a mean average of 83.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

Fun, poppy, and peppy. Sounds like John Lennon when the distortion is applied to the vocals (like in Why Won’t They Talk To Me) and Elephant is a great, driving banger.

Only heard this album for the first time in 2021 - nearly a decade after release. This is a great psychedelic inspired album with great production, tunes and vocals throughout

My favourite Tame Impala album. Love the instrumentals on this album. My highlights are Mind Mischief, Apocalypse Dreams and Keep On Lying. My weakest tracks are Sun's Coming Up and Why Won't They Talk To Me, which are both quite forgettable.

Muy aletargado, repetitivo y monótono. Estoy un poco decepcionado porque es considerado uno de los mejores albums en este sitio web, pero no fue de mi agrado completamente. La única obra maestra acá me parece Feels Like We Only Go Backwards, que también me parece la única con un ritmo sobresaliente de entre las demás.

This is such a charming album! It's got some strange psychedelic work, mixed with some young Beatles, and Bon Iver melodies? Overall, it's really fun and Elephant is an absolute banger.

Listened to this for the first time in ages this morning. It's still an engulfing, trippy experience, with some incredibly ear-catching production. Best heard on headphones, when the music makes the world around you just melt away completely. Really, Kev has yet to top this.
