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 84.2/100, a mean average of 83.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

Evaluating this music is not easy. This is a sort of meditative album and to me separating the songs in just one sitting is tedious.

This album is like Portishead's Dummy (I know it's a bit of stretch), in that it takes into account little other than atmosphere or "vibes" as it has come to be known in this modern vernacular. Dummy is executed with a deft hand, though. This feels a bit ham-fisted. The production is nice, but ultimately meaningless. I can see why this would appeal to some people, not my particular cup of tea.

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.
