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 84.7/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.4.

Perfect album 10/10 in my opinion, of course him being controversial affects how his albums are ranked for example 50 people ranked this album 5/100 which obviously makes no sense but anyway my favourite song would be All of The Lights with Runaway a close second I'm sure Kanye fan or not you would be impressed by this album.

Kanye's finest moment. It is huge and in your face and that is exactly what you expect from him. It has so many fantastic moments where you can't help but smile due to the audacity of him. The ambition and execution got pushed up to levels he unfortunately will never reach again.

The best Kanye has ever done. Every song is strong af, All of the lights, Runaway and Blame Game are all giving goosebumps, and Devil in a new dress is one of Kanyes best productions imo. No low points, and consistantly good performances from everyone involved. 95/100 for me, but not far from the 100

If you had a friend who didn’t like rap/hip-hop, there are parts of this record which might convince him otherwise. Elements of this record show the genre at its best: creative and funny, tight beats, great flow.

And if your friend didn’t like rap, there are parts of this album that would validate his opinion: filler tracks, degrading content, over-the-top egoism.

I don’t think this is the best rap record I’ve ever heard, but it’s peak might be close to the best.

I'm one of the biggest Kanye fans you'll meet, but 32nd on the overall great albums ever made? Higher than Illmatic and Animals? I rate 808s and Yeezus higher, and i'd say those belong just outside the top 100

Just a personal opinion

This is the greatest hip-hop album of all time for a lot of reasons. It's honest, heartfelt, theatrical, over the top, the features are on point, the beats are flawless, it's ambitious, it's beautiful. Honestly, it's just impossible to beat this album in the hip hop game. Rap has been forever changed by what Kanye and friends did in 2010.

Strip away all of the Kanye theatrics, hype and tricks and this is the one he’ll be remembered for. He will never make another album as good as ‘M.B.D.T.F’ and if 2021’s ‘Donna’ is any guide Kanye wont even get close

Overblown, star-studded, glitzy, sexy, pissed off and creative as hell, this is hip-hop at its very finest. Any self serving music fan who doesn’t acknowledge the greatness of this album:

(1) Simply hasn’t listened to it
(2) Needs to get their head out of their ass
(3) Doesn’t understand what production perfection sounds like

My only very small criticism is the Chris Rock skit at the end of the John Legend track “Blame Game” funny and weird on first hearing but becomes annoying over time

Regardless, Yeezy taught us well
