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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 89.3/100, a mean average of 88.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 90.1/100. The standard deviation for this track is 13.2.

An excellent song that builds up to one of the best guitar solos of the 2010s.

Easily the best song on the album and probably their best song overall. It's so beautiful and dreamy. If the rest of the album was like this song, Turn Blue would be one of the best albums of the decade.

This song is a masterpiece. The guitar work alone is extraordinary, and the best of 2014 so far IMHO, it's a shame the rest of the album could not live up to the opener's high standards.

Auerbach and Carney really had a vision for this brilliant opener. That much is clear from its epic-style scope and form. And while the Keys' garage-band fidelity is still evident throughout this new album, "Weight of Love" guides the listener into its darkness with the floating, ambient psychedelic spirit of Pink Floyd. In the course of the track's almost-7-minute span, the Keys impart a multitude of moods and textures, eventually climaxing to a searing guitar solo reminiscent of "Hotel California" golden days.

While the rest of Turn Blue might not be nearly as impressive or fantastically composed, nor nearly as expansive, "Weight of Love" perfectly epitomizes the burden that a broken heart causes. Auerbach, enduring these feelings in the form of his recent divorce, suggests to never yield to the onerous strain associated with break ups or rejection. He suggests, alternatively, to live in the moment and dance, party, drink, take comfort in friendships so as not to succumb to such a heaviness - a trend that's evident in society. The Keys set up the perfect aura to match the lyrics, and this air evolves throughout accordingly.

Not only this, but the producers and musicians had quite some gall to drop the longest (by far) Black Keys release of all time to spearhead the album rather than close with a bang. Quite a bold move, but it pays off. Much of the rest of the record flows in a similar fashion - atmospheric, sometimes Floyd-esque, love-lost, forlorn, and ruminative. A "Headphone Record" indeed.

Anyone else hear Breathe at the beginning?

Album's highlight.
