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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.6/100, a mean average of 82.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

This record serves two purposes.

First, as an incredible set of beats and sounds and samples, it makes for an interesting and energetic soundtrack to your morning tasks.

Second, as a record devoid of lyrics, it helps prove how critical words are to pop music.

Great listen, but no memorable moments.

Yes there are some great sounds on the album, but for me some of the tracks are a bit too long and there's a bit too much filler. But there are some brilliant tracks. Highlights are Stem/Long Stem, Midnight In A Perfect World, What Does Your Soul Look Like and Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt.

I actually really think this album would be amazing if there were lyrics. As it stands, I only really enjoy the song Midnight in a Perfect World enough to listen to regularly.

EDIT: This album is definitely a grower and not a shower. Thanks to Graeme2's comment for inspiring me to listen to this with no distractions. Endtroducing..... really is a atmospheric, daring, and overall great release. Still feel Stem/Long Stem to be the most messy track while also being the least intriguing. Boosting my rating from 75 to 95.

One of the best things about this record is that there is just so much to explore and I keep coming back and noticing things that I have never noticed before. This album is very chill and the mixing and production on this album is just phenomenal. Every track matches the one before it and the one after it in regards to flow and atmosphere making the listen so smooth and serene. There are only a few songs which stand out as amazing on this album which is one of its only real downfalls but despite this every song is of at least good quality and there is little to no filler. Overall, what makes this album great for me is the fact that the songs work together so well that the record truly feels connected and that allows me to be able to just relax and enjoy the music.

A classic. I marvel at the genius that was used to string together the hundreds and hundreds of samples that DJ Shadow had collected. Honestly, it's one of the most haunting albums ever.

Underwhelming, after seeing the reviews and ratings I expected more, I actually like this kinda music but this sounds dated.
