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 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

First MGMT album I've listened through but I've listened to their main three singles a lot - however, I really dig the other songs. I never listen to synthpop so this album might be pretty basic for the genre (I wouldn't know) but really liked it for what it was.

Favourite tracks: Weekend War, Electric Feel

Side A is fantastic, especially when you compare it to the Side B... How did that happen?

Three solid gold hits (Time to Pretend, Kids, Electric Feel) and the rest not really up to half the standard. Especially toward the end of the album. Thankfully they went on to make better and more consistent albums.

A perfect debut album with two irresistible songs and the stunning production by Dave Friedmann.
Sadly after this record, only poor music...

dumbed-down synthpop for the basic indie boys and girls . i'm glad they improved ten years later with "little dark age"

the vocals are grating and horrible, sounds like they're doing a really bad karin dreijer impression lol, other than that its perfectly pleasant electropop/synthpop that only occasionally goes somewhere interesting. overrated ? i think so. still, they seem to have matured in the past ten years and "little dark age" is a pretty solid record, this one however isn't.

How come I had never heard this. I really loved Little Dark Age, but as far as other MGMT releases I only knew "the three classics" but the whole album is just amazing. It has some amazing psychedelic moments and great melodies overall.

Favorite ones (excluding "the three"): "Of Moons, Birds & Monsters", "The Youth", "Weekend Wars"

A extremely well made electronica album that imagines fame through a childish perspective.
