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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.8.

Their most consistent album. Almost flawless if it wasnt for "I Want It All".

I see the typical crowd of early fans thinkgin they sold out. I mean really get a grip, youre ridiculous.

This is the sound of modern rock with some of the most catchy tunes the monkeys have made so far. Is hard to find a more iconic riff in the 2010s than "Do I Wanna Know", fantastic track. "Fireside" , "Snap out of it" and "Why'd you only call me when you're High" are also amazing.

But really the entire album is gold. Their best and most enjoyable record imo.

un album dans lequel s'ammorce le virage entre indi rock et quelque chose de plus pop. Perso, j'aime moins par rapport aux albums précédents.

I missed this group when they broke huge, but this album does nothing to convince me that I missed anything.

More attitude than substance. It has to be said, though, that there are some really catchy tunes.

Not their strongest album, but I have a feeling it's the one that'll stand the test of time the best. There's still plenty on here to please OG fans like me though. I Wanna Be Yours is one of my favourite tracks that they've ever done. John Cooper Clarke is the man!

I can say it is a good album. The Number 1 Track stands out but you can hear the other tracks too. I gave it a good 85 Points not so good but very good. Best songs: Do I Wanna Know, R U Mine?, Arabella, Mad Sounds, No 1 Party Anthem.

For my money, the Monkeys' best album. Love the feel of it. I don't think there's a weak song on it.

AM is the seminal fifth album by Arctic Monkeys, the UK based alternative rock band. Many consider it one of the greatest albums released during the 2010s, and those could not be more right. The album is a far cry from the garage-rock influenced early albums the band released and instead listeners treated with 12 largely magnificent tracks about love, parties and depressing moments in people's lives. The lyrics are deep but simple, the instrumentation is catchy and the melodies are instantly recognizable. The heap of standout singles helps lift this album to new heights. Lyrically and, most importantly, sonically, this is the best album the band has released so far.

Some would call it too poppy or radio-friendly, but the infectious tunes make for an altogether great listen, without a single bad song in there.
