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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.1.

This is the Sgt.Pepper of rap albums. It changed rap forever and is my favorite rap album ever. Probably the best. I think this is highly under rated. His word play, rhyme patterns, and creativity is beyond anything made up to this point. This album is better than Marshal Mathers LP. Best song is Still Don’t Give a F, Bad Meets Evil, My Name Is, and Just Don’t Give a F

A lot of narrative lyricism here, and quite the good Beats. Eminem came over at his debut showing all he got for the scene.

Before Missy Elliott’s pre-recorded hype mans there were Eminem’s theatrical background noises. Horrorcore? Comedycore if you ask me; the guy has humor.
The beats are awful though, even Dr. Dre’s.

The Slim Shady LP BEA Ranked 498 Overall as per February 2018

Rap just aint my thing but as part of my odyssey to listen to the BEA top 500 twice it was a bridge I had to cross , and cross that bridge I did TWICE.

It just so happened that I checked out Eminem' Marshell Mathers Album only a few weeks ago just for the hell of it so I had this as a reference point. I guess if you put a gun to my head I'd have to say I enjoyed this one more , The Mathers LP was purile in many parts .

This album unfortunately contains too many MOTHER referances for my liking ( as did The Mathers LP come to think of it ) which all felt too creepy and weird IMO. Theres no one killer track either (MM LP had Kim for example) , my favorite was 'Bonnie And Clyde' which includes a very cute Eminems daughter on a VERY dark track.

Oh and the "skits" are down right god damn awful !!!. They are completely childish and downright embarrassing , they are something a 13yo would find humerous. How they were allowed to be included is completely beyond me.

IMO i think this is better than MMLP, because this one is about his life, and what life did to him.

Gets a lot of love because of its shock value and Eminem bursting on the scene. A white rapper that could actually flow and rhyme with skill brought everybody together to name him rap king.

The fact is this is pretty silly goofy stuff. What he writes about is trivial and his vocal delivery throughout has this high whiny quality he eventually leaves behind in subsequent releases.

Can't deny what he can rhyme and how he times the delivery. But the topics are so stupid here that it can only really be labeled as a fun party album. It just doesn't go as deep enough as better rap albums regardless of skin color

When this first came out I thought it was for people with a low IQ. I'm starting to appreciate it a bit more, but it's still very juvenile.

His rap style is captivating, that nobody can deny.

Nothing really bad here but also nothing that really stands out.

It's adolescent rantings. On the other hand, it's extremely eloquent adolescent rantings. Plus also, he's the best rhymer in the business.

Without a doubt an iconic album. Loved it when I was getting interested in rap. The humor is great and pushes boundaries unlike many. Some may say he's got stupid lyrics but personally he's a great storyteller. These songs really tell stories unlike many rappers and uses humor to do so. If you look past that to, you see a dark side of him and his story.
