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 80.2/100, a mean average of 78.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

Damn. It's good, but not quite up to level with TPAB/GKMC but his 3. best just ahead of MMBS. Pride, Humble, DNA are the high points, love and God the weak. Duckworth is a good story. It feels as though he doesn't quite push through the same way as in TPAB, with his messages. He struggles with himself it seems like, and its interesting to see.

Highs: Pride, Humble, DNa

Lows: Love, God

I mean it’s pretty obvious he was vying for commercial success here but it’s still so damn good.

This is Kendrick's Let's Dance. It marks the first time he started chasing trends instead of setting them. But like David Bowie, Kendrick Lamar knows how to write a great album.

I’ll be one of the rare comments that calls this record better than Butterfly, which felt too ambitious…to the point of being cluttered and unfocused. The storytelling on this album (Duckworth is a masterpiece) and the backwards album concept are both brilliant.

Upon first listen, this was super disappointing considering everything that came before it. We'll see if it grows on me more. The song "FEAR." was the only song that I truly adored from this album, but there are other good songs.

No, it isn't as good as GKMC or TPAB, but it's still great. And you know, it has a couple of really great tunes on it. It didn't deserve to win the Pulitzer Prize or whatever, but it doesn't deserve some of the criticism it gets.
