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 Bayesian average rating of 62.4/100, a mean average of 62.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 62.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 22.4.

To me it's really good, definitely has an American Idiot vibe, but dare I say momentarily feels even better though overall it's not kinda masterpiece like AI. Actually and unfortunately, their last really good album.

This album is pretty good, maybe a little long, but I would say it is almost the same level as American Idiot.

Seemingly an attempt to recreate American Idiot, the album falls flat in comparison in every way (and I'm not a huge fan of American Idiot either). To me, this album was the obvious start of Green Day's fall from grace.

How could Green Day manage a very well album after the breakout American Idiot? The answers are simple, firstly they rocked as **** showing its angriness and powerfulness (Horseshoes and Handgrenades, Murder City, Know Your Enemy) that they ever had, secondly melodically it's even kind of better than American Idiot (21 Guns, The Static Age) and finally the piano sounded terrific (Restless Heart Syndrome, Viva la Gloria!) The reason why I didn't give them 100% were lyrically (because it was a bit confused)
THE BEST ALBUM OF MY ADOLESCENCE!

American Idiot was a punk rock opera about politics

21st Century is a punk rock opera about love

Not nearly as novel as American Idiot, this feels pretty forced and heavy handed.

It just sounds like a re-hashed attempt at American Idiot.

The lyrics are much worse here even if the music is more varied.

Probably gets more flack than it deserves because American Idiot was so good and this is such an obvious attempt at replicating the scope and size of that gem.

It's still pretty good, borderline 4 out of 5 stars and still wayyyyy better than the ridiculously overrated mindless stoner skater Dookie

Underrated album. They tried to do a little too much with this one. Idiot was a concept album, but it was still accessible to the simple punk crowd. This is a straight-up concept album that is a bit too long. Side 1 is pretty good, side 2 is total crap, side 3 is alright, and 4 kicks ass. Far from flawless, but the lyrics are pretty great on most tracks, the highlight being Mass Hysteria.
