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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.4/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

They follow the same successful formula as in their debut, but the original is simply better.

Love this record. Not as good as their debut for me but close enough. Some of these songs are up there with their bests.

Their third best imo behind Is This It and The New Abnormal. This is loaded with bangers, but a few tracks in the middle are clear filler. Still, it's not terrible filler, it's just not as outstanding as the songs in the beginning and end. I'm feeling a strong eight to a light nine. traaansition.

Great stuff, probably more consistent than their previous. It leans into the exact same style as the previous, but you won't hear me complain, and what would you expect from the people who brought real rock back? I'm actually relieved there's finally a band that doesn't try to do something "different" constantly (in quotation marks, because it never gets any further than reselling existing genres to a rock audience who have been living under a... well... rock, and imitating '60s psychedelic rock, and all of it overproduced). Thank god for The Strokes.

Proof that is isn't always necessary to lengthen songs, bridges or solos. The typical Strokes sharp guitar sound and individually very good songs make this a very great album. Before you know it, the album is over. 80/100
