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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

A Thousand Leaves by Sonic Youth has some songs with some riffs that bear a striking resemblance with some riffs on this album. So I know where their sudden interest in punk came from. Other than that, there's enough on this album to enjoy that's original, 'Battle' is a personal favorite... of course what's not original can still be enjoyed, but if you want to find similar music, you know where to find it.

This album was nearly as mind bending for me as Kid A the first time I heard it. I had never heard anything like it before. The perfect mix of excellent straightforward songs and brash experiments still resonates with me in a big way.

And again, there are some great songs in here, but I get bored with the bad ones. Tough discography... 6/10.

The best album by Blur contains a more experimental sound (c/o W.Orbit) a good listen from start to finish. Lyrically it is much darker and musically experimental than anything they had done before.

I used to think Blur was relatively straightforward britpop until I heard this album. Jesus was this mind blowing.

A bizarre record. And I love it for that. Shoutouts to William Orbit to make it weird as fuck. And I love it because of it. Hell I might give this a 100 with future listens just to get the lyrics. But instrumentally this reminds me of records that came in the future.

Great, psychedelic album. Sounds kinda like Gorillaz.
