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 84.0/100, a mean average of 82.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

I can understand why people love it. Ocean puts on a great vocal performance while accompanied by stellar production. Unfortunately, I just don't vibe well with the style of the album. It's a little too stripped down at times, while at other times it is too full. The album's structure doesn't work for me either. His rapping is too harsh while the the backing beat is too soft. I can appreciate it's beauty and his lyrical writing, but it just isn't for me and it definitely isn't a masterpiece.

Listening to the Dissect Podcast on this album really shined a light on how amazing this album is. Once it grows on you it is full of detail, lots of duality throughout.

Sonically interesting and varied in a good way, but the vocal delivery is a mixed bag in a less good way.

The ideas and the writing behind blonde are rather beautiful. Lyrics invoke everything from Norse heroes to lean recipes in Texas while describing love, sadness, and nostalgia. The production on the other hand just never finds success. The pitch up vocals sound wonky and pull you from the emotion of the songs. The bland almost ambient mixing drones on and on through the album. I do think the second half makes a little bit of a comeback with "White Ferrari","Siegfried", and "Godspeed" but that's not enough in a 17 track album.
