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 Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

This is the album that made me an Arcade Fire fan. Of course, you have some strong songs in the other albums but I'm always excited to watch a band move from their comfort zone and really make it. Here Comes the Night Time isn't the best song of the album but embodies that attitude: you have the frenesi of something different happening and the mellow parts that remind us they are just expanding their pallet of sounds without losing their style. I just love this album so much; I've heard it a few times before writing this and I discover new subtle sounds each time.

At the risk of being crucified by old school Arcade Fire fans: I prefer this over The Suburbs

I like this album a lot ! The change of sound is not bad (not yet) and quite refreshing. However, it's definitely too long, gets boring at the end. I have the feeling Supersymmetry is just long for no reason. Think it would be a real masterpiece with 2 or 3 tracks removed.

79/100, but 85/100 for the tracks, just like The Suburbs ? Underrated album for sure.

Standouts: Reflektor, We Exist, It's Never Over, Afterlife
Personal favourite: Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice)

I had heard their earlier stuff - missed this and heard Everything Now and took a while to adjust top the change with a more electronic and almost dance sound. But this album is clearly the transition - electronic, reggae, a bit of disco and dancey. I like it and it's growing more on me with every listen.

If disc 1 is too experimental for its own good disc 2 is too good for its own good

Pretty sad this didn't take off with a lot of users on this site. Criminally underrated. James Murphy+Arcade Fire=Awesome. Easily 2nd greatest album of theirs imo. Great soundscapes and songwriting imo. I don't even notice it's a double album. Sure it's not Funeral, but it's great.

Not bad but Arcade Fire supporters do overrate it a LITTLE BIT. Reflektor the song is in no shape or form a 91/100 but meh, whatever.
