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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.8/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Sort of sounds like a sequel to 'Is This It'. There's plenty of top notch tracks but unlike its predecessor it's not as consistent. But that was always going to be a hard ask. Still a great album though.
As most people have already pointed out before, this is a weaker version of Is This It but that shouldn't take away from the quality that is on here. Their style is so simple yet it is almost impossible to replicate its originality. They just seem to have a gift at creating genius hooks and choruses that just get stuck in our brains and we can't get them out of there. This is demonstrated best on Is This It but there are loads on here which show it as well. A few examples would be 12:51, What Ever Happened?, Reptilia and I Can't Win. When I think about it there isn't that much on here that isn't great or fantastic. There are only a few skippable tracks that keep it from being up there with their debut. Overall, this record goes a little under appreciated due to its similarities with Is This It when actually it is still a fantastic release and has so many songs which are instant Strokes classics.
The songs come across as simple, which raises the question of why more bands can’t create music this good. The Strokes have a signature sound and it works.
Is This It 2.0
Acá The Strokes se mantienen en su género, tras explotar como las mega estrellas que le faltaban a la escena del rock y que dejan en claro en las letras de What Ever Happened? o Reptilia. No está para nada malo el disco. De hecho, muchos lo prefieren por encima de Is This It? Por ahora, personalmente no estoy de acuerdo, pero eso no me ha limitado de gozar este disco. Por supuesto, tiene a Reptilia, el hitazo y la canción más reconocida de la banda, pero el disco es más que eso, tiene otros grandes temas como Automatic Stop, The End Has No End, incluso What Ever Happened? la canción que abre el tema es mi segunda favorita después de Reptilia. Muy disfrutable, y probablemente se quede justamente con el título de Segundo mejor album de The Strokes.
Not as consistent as Is This It, but it contains my favourite Strokes song, 12:51. Reptilia and I Can't Win are great too.

Álbum pipocão.. Bom com uma cerveja gelada!
Not only the best Strokes album but the best album of all time
Efficace, comme souvent avec les Stokes
They follow the same successful formula as in their debut, but the original is simply better.
