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 Bayesian average rating of 79.5/100, a mean average of 78.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

A bit too long, so doesn't really work as an album for me. But there are some highlights - Motherboard, Give Life Back To Music, Doing It Right and Get Lucky (although it was massively overplayed when it came out).

This album could definitely be trimmed down quite a bit with the 1 hour and 15 minute run time really pushing the concentration of the listener. There just isn't enough variation to keep someone engaged for that long and with there being quite a few tracks I would consider filler, it did become quite a slog to get through. Despite this, there are great songs present that do really carry the album and are some of Daft Punk's best tracks ever. The features are a real strength as well such as Panda Bear and Nile Rodgers being my favourites. You also have to give a lot of credit to the production which is always flawless and makes for a fantastic listen. Overall, if this record was cut down it would be one of the greatest of all time but unfortunately that hasn't been done

First introduction to Daft Punk, excellent album. It really featured the sound of the futur.

Found more to enjoy on a second listen, but the uneven track quality and overall length tests my patience.

Giorgio by Moroder, Instant Crush and some instrumental tracks are amazing but rest is mediocre pop music imo.

This is such a treat to listen to. Especially now we've had a bit of space from "get lucky" being played everywhere throughout 2013.

It sounds unquestionably human. I don't know how else to describe it.

You know, I'm a HUGE fan of Disco. The genre was definitely over-saturated back in the day, but it was too good to completely die out like it did. I'm so glad that Daft Punk revisited the genre. The instrumentals on this album are some of the best Disco instrumentals I've ever heard.

Sadly, and this may just be a personal thing, the vocals on this album are nearly unbearable. I can handle the use of a vocodor every once in a while to add emphasis or spice things up, but the fact that 90% of the vocals on this album are sung through a vocodor ruins what should be absolutely amazing songs for me. I'm not saying that their choice to have "robot vocals" is a wrong one, but it sadly doesn't appeal to me, as much as I want it to.
