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 80.9/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

White Stripes is a problematic band for me as I cannot get into the heart of their matter. Their music is quite dark and even noisy and that is not a thing that makes me dig this album. Not a bad album but Jack White should have used more chords and rhythmic variations to make this album grab me. A big monotonous sonically. I liked Elephant much more.

This was their best effort up to that point. Then, Elephant happened.

This is the white stripes most catchy album, for lack of a better word. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great with classic songs like fell in love with a girl, dead leaves, hotel Yoruba and many more, but the last 4 or 5 songs sound too similar IMO and the album goes on just a little too long. But every white stripes album is still worth your time despite anything I say.

This is one of the best albums of the 2000's, and an all time classic. The White Stripes songwriting and playing here has such an unbridled ferocity behind it. There is an endless amount of sheer musical creativity, wrapped in fuzzed-out garage rock revival glory.
