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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.1.

That noise in the beginning of “In the Flowers” sounds like Cell from Dragon Ball Z absorbing someone and it grosses me out.

MPP is Animal Collective's masterpiece. Yes, it's not as experimental as some of the earlier albums, which are genus in their own rights, but the songwriting, lush loops, and zeitgeist all combine here to form arguably the most important (and possibly the best) pop album in recent memory.

A fantastic album. I love every song and every sound on it. The album is obviously, strongly influenced by psychedelics. The repetition, the mantras, the uncertainty, the internal arguments, the humor, the lack of chronology, the layered sound; it's like a sonic acid trip. Not only is the sampling and instrumentation mind-blowing but the lyrical themes are incredibly well thought out and clever. It easy to hear how much care was put into this album. Seriously impressive.

This was awesome, though it failed off a little towards the end.

Favorites: In the Flowers, My Girls, Daily Routine.

You can hear that Animal Collective was able to articulate the vibes they made on this album from the drugs they did. This is a lucid and trippy experience but it's rewarding when you finally understand what they were trying to achieve. It's abstract electronic pop but it's truly great music when you achieve the ear to hear it.

Thank god someone gave these kids a good spanking and told them “if you want people to enjoy your music, you have to actually make it sound nice”. Everything sounds so much more as if someone actually put thought in it. The songwriting isn’t as repetitive and hyperactive as the music, which makes it less of a problem that the music still is.
