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 5% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.2/100, a mean average of 75.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

This album hits the perfect blend of Pop punk and emo that their previous album and their following album have (YFW being the pop punk and TDAGARIM being the emo) a balanced album that is pretty close to being my favorite by them

The best moments remind me of Weezer,
the lesser parts remind me of Blink 182.

As someone who is not really into emo music, I liked Deja Entenou significantly more than the Devil and God. Still not something I'd generally listen to. I liked the melodies and build up of every song but the emo payoff is not something I vibe to. There are rare moments when I'm in an emo mood so next time I am, I'll throw this album on for sure.

The most astonishing about this album is how I notice new things every time i listen to it, even after 13 years of listening to it. Incredible depth both musically and lyrically, both building on YFW and paving the way for TDAG. Absolutely brilliant album in every way.

I have listened to this album countless times, and back when It came out it was the only record I had with me and my walkman, so I would listen to is over and over again. Although sic transit Gloria is a great song, the lyrics or vocal performance on the other tracks isn't overly impressive. Its a good record, but does not deserve to be ranked as high as it is.

It makes me sad to know people in my school who say they enjoy "emo" and "pop punk" and they don't know anything of this album or band.
Last week, I showed this to a friend and he was pleasantly surprised, he said he was looking for music like this for years.
In my personal opinion, this the greatest pop punk album ever made.
Best tracks: Play Crack The Sky, i believe you .. but my tommy gun don't, Guernica, Elvis vs. Maradona vs. me

I don't know how I memorized this whole album in a few weeks. But I did. Mind-blowingly influential, brilliant lyricism that will stick with me my whole life. Easily the greatest emo record of all time. I would kiss Jesse Lacey's feet.

i remember the first time i heard this album. i purchased it at some commercial giant (best buy, i believe), went home, threw the disc into my portable sony walkman and paced around my parents' backyard. i was barefoot. the grass was green and slightly damp. the sun was up, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. it was just cool enough outside that the sun was not a nuisance.

i listened through the entire album, throwing tennis balls for my dog throughout the ordeal. i was floored. i also felt a little bit dirty. this was not an album for children, but at the same time, that's exactly what it was. it's the opposite of disney. there's no sugar-coating. it's life. it's raw. it's messy. yes, it's dirty.

and it's brilliant. i read through the lyrics over and over, making sure i understood every word. this was not a lyrical style i was familiar with, and every word was so packed full of wit, the packaging could hardly contain it. it took me years to truly understand a lot of it, if i'm being honest (and i am).
