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 mean average rating of 69.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 70.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.6.

Megalomanic. Really ridiculous at times. The catchiest moments are the best moments on this album.

The beginning of the decline for Muse. No, it's not a bad album, but it sets the sound for the next records that are not good IMO.

Standouts: Uprising, Resistance

Really good album, though not as good as their previous 3.

Favorites: Resistance, United States of Eurasia, Guiding Light, Unnatural Selection.

The 3 part symphony is by far the best thing about this.

It's good, but beginning of a formulaic, samely political and lately annoying muse sound.

Awesome album, underrated AF. The only song that is a bit tiring is Guiding Light, but still enjoyable. 9/10, 2nd best album by Muse in my opinion.

Favorite Songs: I Belong To You, Unnatural Selection
This fantastic album is brought down only a little by the symphony at the end.

This is an amazing album. Allot of comments keep talking about the first three songs. Yes, they are the best songs but there are great songs after them as well. Exogenesis is a very well crafted and emotional song which doesn't get enough praise. I'll rank this album fourth best out of the current seven studio albums.

2009 was a disappointing year album wise with not much I really dug , except for the excellent THE RESISTANCE by Muse. Bombastic, completely OTT and more Queenesqu than Queen this album somehow works . Like a rich pudding or strong alcoholic cocktail one dose of this album does leaves me feeling full having enjoyed every morsel and completely satisfied for a while until it’s time to indulge once more
