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 has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.2.

I dont feel like its very different from the stile of NIN. Yeah, it doesnt have the anger, the screams or a lot of guitar distorsion of previus works, instead, have more techno and synth, in some way.

The music is great :D . Its transport me to a goth rave, like that scene from the firts movie of Matrix, the white rabbit scene. All the songs goes to the same direction, except for Everthing jaja.

I think that its very good album.

Trent Reznor's latest (as of the time of the writing of this review) offering as Nine Inch Nails is an interesting step for the project, as it moves towards a more electronic-based sound. Some didn't like the new sound, but but I think it's really great. The new direction owes enough to the past to be a continuation of the band's sound, while doing enough new things to not be a repeat of the past. I personally think that the album is a really exciting step in a new direction, which might mark the beginning of a new phase in the band's history.

Lyrically, Trent has nothing left to say and Nine Inch Nails has become the Coldplay of industrial music, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Not a bad effort from Trent, but nothing like two decades ago when he was Mr. Self-Destruct. I think success may agree with him and that's not a bad thing.

Intelligent, dark, but some songs have not too much creative, obviously by the side of the NIN really great songs, Treznor has a great dark mind, but it's the time to stop making great music, is going to come, soon, this album is a big advertisment

Best song: Everything
Worst song: All Time Low

I'm gonna settle for a 90 for the moment, I think it could be a 100 for me but I need three or four more listens.

Really just an excellent effort from Trent. This was my favourite album of 2013 and currently I'd say it's his second-best (we all know what takes first).

"the fragile" came out way back in 1999. i bring this up because you can just about forget everything trent has released since then (including how to destroy angels) because "hesitation marks" sounds like the natural progression from that pop-industrial album, connecting the dots to his recent soundtrack scores, one of which for "the social network" has netted him an oscar. The only thing really missing from "the fragile" is an anger in trent's vocals and guitar. His age has offset the anger with a subtle tension in the keyboards and programming of these tracks, best illustrated in "the hits": "copy of a" and "came back haunted". He even has a strong dance-track-like number in "satellite". (The guitar's a supporting member now.) It's very solid work throughout from an artist i nearly had written off.

Another deep album from Reznor. You can't expect this man to produce the same music that he did from his troubled times in the 90s. He's just not the same person, and it shows in his music. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest surprises of the year, and it ranks in my top ten records of 2013.

I really wanted this album to be better than it is. It does feel like a bit of a return to an earlier sound, but it lacks the aggression that made his best songs great.
