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 26% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.3/100, a mean average of 74.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Gotta love clipping. I probably set my expectations too high for their second album, but there’s still a lot to be enjoyed here. Just like their self-titled debut, Splendor & Misery demands to be listened to in one uninterrupted sitting to get the full effect. This time around there’s a more cohesive narrative, and the production is so finessed that you’re basically listening to a non-visual film.

Best track: All Black. The first full-length track on the album, it sets the scene spectacularly. ALL BLACK EVERYTHING.

A sci-fi epic composed of gospel beauty, cutting-edge rapping and extremely interesting production. clipping. sure know how to tell a great story with both awareness and depth. "Splendor & Misery" is very close to the pinnacle of experimental hip-hop and one of the best albums of 2016; a rapturous experience.

Just sensational. Experimental, atmospheric, incredible lyricism, great drone-y sounds, gospel cutting through, rich concept, but concise and sharp. Really impressive listen.

A pretty amazing concept album by clipping. It's definitely not as catchy as CLPPNG or as harsh/unsettling as Midcity, but it's story and wide ranging style make for a great concept album, and since Daveed Diggs flow is so unbeatable its no wonder this album ended up so great.
