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 23% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.5/100, a mean average of 73.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Given the caliber of musicians in this band I expected a better album. Don't get me wrong, it's good, just not great. There's some fine songs on it (New Fang, Bandoliers, Reptiles) but every time I listen to it, I can't shake the thought of it being an album of second tier QOTSA tracks that didn't make the cut to get on the album.

Awesome. When Dave Grohl is drumming, you can expect it to rock.

Favorites: Elephants, Gunman.

I'm glad they enjoy playing together but if I'm being honest I'm much more likely to pick up and listen to a Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters or QOTSA album. It starts quite well but I actually find this difficult to listen to all the way through, it gets quite boring actually, before Gunman lifts it back up.

Too badass for you. You don't even deserve this album. Neither do I.

Good album. Seems a little underrated here. It has more QOTSA underpinnings, but JPJ and Dave Grohl do a great job (particularly JPJ) supporting this album.

A ton of great stuff on this album, from the first listen of the first track, I knew I was going to really dig this album. I hope Grohl, Jones, and Homme find time in the coming years to do another TCV record.
