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 85.0/100, a mean average of 83.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

As good as the singles which were already familiar. After a fairly drab start, most tracks maintain the standard of "Elephant". T3 Apocalypse Dreams & T7 Feels Like We Only Go Backwards are standouts.

Much of the album is so lennonesque, that it leaves me thinking just what would have become of The Beatles, had they survived into our present moment. I fear that they too would have become a band unlikely to scale the airplay and download charts of the 2010s.

Tame Impala, likewise, are very accomplished and delightful to listen to make more than a faint impression on the current commercial musical scene.

Just as good as the singles, album, most of the tracks maintain the high standard of "Elephant". The other stand out tracks are, of course, Apocalypse Dreams & Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.

As has already been said, much of the album is so lennonesque, that it leaves me thinking just what would have become of The Beatles, had they survived into our present moment. I fear that they too would have become a band unlikely to scale the airplay and download charts of the 2010s.

Tame Impala are very accomplished and delightful to listen to, but their music may have to take a turn for the worse, if they are not to become yet another good musical act to make little more than a very faint impression on the current musical scene.

Nostalgic and referential while still feeling wholly unique

This is a solid record with some great individual tracks on here that stand out and are so easy to love. The stylings are unique and there is a lot of character and individuality in the music on here. It sounds fantastic as well with the music being so clear and clean which allows us to just sit back and get lost in this modern great. Overall, a classic Tame Impala record which has everything that people love about the artist on here which makes it easy to see why it is so highly ranked.

Lonerism takes what was brilliant in Innerspeaker and manages to dial everything up to eleven. The production has far more nuance and character while remaining un-mistakenly by the same artist. The hits timeless and the influence of The Beatles and The Zombies is present throughout.

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.
