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 mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.3.

Serving more as a great collection of ideas rather than a cohesive whole, I concur with the sentiment of others that this is delving into decadence for decadence sake. However, it's still a high-quality, high-octane album from one of Rap's finest producers. A Surrealist escape into a Kanye-centric brainstorm and that's interesting on its own merits.

I suppose that for me it is not the album of the decade of the 10s, but I also think that I am going to give this album a chance that made a before and after in the music history of 2010 and the decade. 10/10.

This album is the peak of luxury rap. It's grand, it's devilish, it's debaucherous and it's such a great listen. Not a single skip-able song on the album.

The best word I can use to describe this album is decadent. It is filled with such sweet pleasures ("Monster" and most of "Hell of a life" ). At these high points Kanye drops some of his best bars and beats. But like anything decadent is eventually becomes disgusting. There are so really questionable production choices such as the voices on "Gorgeous". The most questionable thing on the album is of course the ending to "Hell of a liife". Things like this really ruin the albums potential.

I don't have much of a history with rap but this is astounding. The production is butter smooth yet human, the hooks are insane, the instrumentation is rock-inspired at multiple points which is really fun, and his lyrics are introspective and often remorseful... on the good songs. I don't know about rating this one as high as it is, but only because it's not completely consistent. Blame Game and So Appalled are the frontrunners of garbage here imo, and Hell Of A Life and Monster don't tread far behind. But every other track on here really pull their weight.

Favorites: Dark Fantasy, Gorgeous, POWER, All Of The Lights, Runaway
