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 has a Bayesian average rating of 69.0/100, a mean average of 67.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.4.

Damn. This album is a mess. The songs all have unbelievable potential and they ARE good songs, but most are way too long and the production is pretty bad. This album could use a serious remix, though it will never happen. Pretty unfortunate, still biblical.

Probably the most disappointed I've ever been in a record when it first came out. I don't mind long songs but every one of these overstays its welcome and as a result Be Here Now is a chore to get through. There are good songs like Stand By Me and D'You Know What I Mean is not bad but there is a lot of crap on this album. One thing I do like is Liam's voice. It's much deeper and raspier, like his live voice, and it would have been really interesting had he been singing like this during the first two albums when his brother was giving him quality songs to sing.

As an album though: this is pretty crap. But that's just my opinion.

Not a good follow-up to What's The Story (Morning Glory). You can tell they started to hate each other at this point.

Be here now is as good as definitely maybe and morning glory but people over criticise it because there was so much hype that no one could live up to. I agree that some songs are overlong but it is not irritating by any means. There are some masterpieces like "stand by me", "don't go away" and there are some superb songs like "my big mouth", "i hope, i think, i know" and that's not all of it. "Do you know what i mean", "all around the world", and "fade in out" are way above the average as well. Rest of the songs are too. You can say it's an unsuccessful album but you can not say it's a bad album.

Tons of hype, tons of coke, a couple of decent songs, a bunch of terrible ones, endless.
The mixing is a shit with all of these useless loudy guitars that cover up everything, bassline is missing, drums is nothin'and the voice is irritating. End of Oasis.

One of the most underrated albums of all time that people know well, it is a step down from an impossible standard and Liam sounds incredible on the whole album

An album with a couple good ideas, executed horribly. Very bloated, with nearly every song going on for a couple minutes longer than they should. Production is horrendous as well.

This isn't a bad album by any means, it's not as biblical™ as their first two records but it's still a good listen. The main problem with Be Here Now is the length of the songs, which on their own aren't that bad to deal with but when you listen to an hour-long album filled with seven minute songs that get repetitive after a while, it becomes tedious.
