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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.2/100, a mean average of 76.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

Good uncomplicated rhythmic tracks but in no way basic. Chugs along nicely right through. The tracks do start to sound quite similar though. Good but doesn't overly suck you in.

Direct and catchy. Also a lot smoother than their previous work.

Arctic Monkeys most commercially successful album shows ambition and an awareness of what music would be a success at the time sections of songs taking inspiration from hip-hop/modern drum patterns. The result is an album of catchy cool songs that still has their signature style within the lyrical delivery and content.

This record is very enjoyable and makes for extremely easy and accessible listening. Songs like R U Mine?, Arabella and Do I Wanna Know are the best examples of this and are all so contagious. They are simple and effective and the choruses we are treated to are simply superb. The energy is very effective as well with the album never really giving you a second to think as it is a non stop blast. Every song is pretty decent as well making for a consistent listen. However, I do crave a bit more experimentation and excitement every time I hear this album. I want more reasons to be drawn back because the catchy songs can get boring after a while. Overall, an enjoyable release that anyone can enjoy and is well worth a listen.

The Monkeys tell the same story, essentially, over and over. But they do it so damn well, leaving the listener wistful or nostalgic.

That they do so with the basic rock band instruments, played simply but expertly, adds to the charm.

The first two songs crush, truly.

More brilliance from Arctic Monkeys. A return to form after the slightly-below-average (but still very good) Humbug and Suck It And See. Very consistent album. My highlights are R U Mine, Fireside and Knee Socks. Shout out for No 1 Party Anthem too. The only forgettable songs are I Want It All and Mad Sounds.

I recall them when they first came out without getting into them - although I have started to get their albums and appreciate their sound. This album is just as good as their earlier stuff although not as youthful and energetic perhaps - but hey I expect my rockers to age gracefully and that is what they are doing here
