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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.7/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

One of those albums thats nostalgic to a fault for me. Hysteric is my wedding song. Is it a 100? Maybe not, but for me it is. Every song sparks a magic in me that is undeniable. Listen to the extended version, so much beautiful music. Thank you YYY for letting this record exist.

Almost half a decade ago, I was a 15 year old who thought this record was just "great". Today I realised it's things like this that make me feel alive.

My favorite album from 2009 & my second favorite YYY album behind Show Your Bones . Every song bar Dragon Queen ( which feels Fillerish) is great. Released on January 1st 2009 It’s Blitz stands the test of time some 9 years later

Best Yeah Yeah Yeahs album since the debut. More electronic textures this time, with their best set of songs for a while. Excellent record.

YYY's best album for me. Combines the best parts of FTT and SYB- nice electronic effort that still showcases Karen O's great voice. My favourites are: runaway, heads will roll, zero and skeletons.

Not got the visceral energy that Fever To Tell had, but still superb.
