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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

LP1 is an interesting album as the lush spacey production feels like a polished project of artist later in their career. The lyricism feels much more young, as many of the interesting ideas discussed lack the the punch twigs is reaching for. Still very enjoyable.

I sincerely hope her new release forces people to come back and revisit this fantastic album. It has the same average track rating as Magdalene but has only an album rating of 76 because it wasn't cool to like twigs when this came out - was she for real or did she just hit the market right with this certain sound? She's for real, she was on Magdalene but she showed it all here, oh and "Two Weeks" is got to get some serious consideration for top songs of the decade.

LP1 is more consistent if less adventurous than Magdalene. Her voice sounds like it descends from the heavens and the beats and production back it up w/ some sexy R&B futuristic instrumentals. She was singular on here though. You can point to points on Magdalene and say "that's Kate Bush" but here on LP1 it sounded like 100% FKA Twigs. I love both albums, and I'm glad we have both, for sure she could have dropped another experimental RnB album and it would have been great, but she didn't and I'm glad because she went even further in a different direction. But she sounds damn good w/ the sound she has on this LP1. Here's looking to 2024 for LP3!

So much anticipation rode this album before it came out but I think it's lived up to it. Where she could just as easily have gone for ten nice-but-naff radio-ready R&B ballads, she didn't. The rich mix of producers means that each track does its own thing, but they all belong to the same world.

Best track: Give Up. It's like the song you hear in your head just before the poltergeist pulls you into the TV.

Such a great pop album, with a lot of influence from Grimes to Cocteau twins... I love the experimental vibe that inspires freedom, it fits perfectly with her smooth voice. Closer and preface are my favorites.

One of the best "pop" albums in recent memory, I use quotations because although you wouldn't be wrong classifying it as pop, it still sounds miles away from mainstream fare. Thanks to the wonderful Arca, this record is full of entrancing production complemented with twigs' ethereal vocals; from the orchestral "closer" to the otherworldly "prologue", this album manages to be sexy, sleek, disturbing and enchanting - sometimes all at once. My personal favourites are "Two Weeks", "Pendulum" & "Give Up" which are all simply gorgeous.

With this record, FKA twigs has firmly placed her footprint into the vast musical landscape of the world. Definitely one of the very best albums of the year.

What a breathtaking phenomenal record that's incredibly hypnotic with beats and vibes that put you in twigs' universe which is quite a trip for most of the album.

It bends ever so slightly to current trends but not as much as something like Beyonce's self titled. A couple weak tracks but enough strong material to make this a standout in this alternative r&b / synth pop genre offshoot that's become so successful this decade.

If you are going to take 1 album from this genre, make it this one.

While I did enjoy this album after a few listens, unfortunately I found it a little overrated. Maybe I need a few more listens to see why it was pretty unanimous as a best-of for the year.

FKA twigs debut LP1 is a thematic extension of EP2: A plea that maybe the cure for loneliness and isolation is via sexual intimacy. Thus, it seems fitting that this is one of the sexiest albums of all time, even to the point of orgasm mimicry (end of Pendulum) or the most overtly pro-female masturbation anthem since Divinyl's "I Touch Myself" (Kicks). This album is more than that, however, often using its sexuality as a reverse euphanism for a lot of society's pretenses. Arca's help with production makes this album feel far ahead of its time, in a decade where that has become extremely difficult.
