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 78.7/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

I really wasn't expecting to love this album as much as I do. So ethereal with gooey basslines, apt vocals and memorable hooks. Wow.

If I have to identify my favorite Spoon album, I think this is it. It's hard to say why, because every Spoon album is great and has something special to offer. I think "They Want My Soul" is the one that stands out for me because of its feel, of how the songs seamlessly follow each other and because of its hits (Outlier, Inside Out, Rainy Taxi and They Want My Soul are among my favorite Spoon tracks ever). Spoon is awesome and this album too!

Based on their output so far in their career, I rate They Want My Soul just about an exactly average Spoon record: not quite as good as Gimme Fiction or Girls Can Tell, but slightly better than A Series of Sneaks or Transference. Put another way, They Want My Soul is a really good album. That's how consistent Spoon has been. This is more of a treading water kind of album rather than a groundbreaking masterpiece, but that's the thing with Spoon--all their albums find a memorable groove, and all are worth owning and reward repeated listens. "Do You," the lead single from this album, is quintessential Spoon: groovy, full of hooks, with a distinct blue-eyed soul influence that sets them apart from other indie rock bands. Great stuff, as always, from one of the great bands of their generation.

Supreme indie-rock album from Spoon who show no signs of debilitation. "They Want My Soul" is a smartly written and excellently produced album that also has potential to be a huge crowd-pleaser, with its hooks and anthemic nature, rather than an unappealing critical darling.

Every track is impressive and what sets this apart from run-of-the-mill indie albums is its sheer consistency and all the finer details in the production which reward repeat listens. A great record.

They Want My Soul is consistently good. There aren't really any stand out tracks other than Do You?

This is middle of the road Spoon. It is below the killer 3 album run of Gimme Fiction, Ga Ga, Transference. But better than their early work
