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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.2.

Thumbing their nose at resurging British nationalism and monarchism, Sons of Kemet present nine pieces of feverish jazz as tributes to nine black women from history they deem more deserving of reverence than our queen. Woven into the album are dozens of other musical styles ranging from funk to grime, all played on the same simple set-up of tuba, sax and drums.

The prolific Shabaka Hutchings (Melt Yourself Down, The Shabaka And The Ancestors, The Comet Is Coming...) returns in 2018 with one of his many projects, Sons Of Kemet. "Your queen is a reptile" is a concept album denouncing the imperialism and injustice of the British monarchy. They celebrate here other queens, each track paying homage to a woman, who have all led resistance movements. The music of Son of Kemet, has its source in the heart of Africa from the rhythms of Nigeria to the intersections of Addis Ababa. From project to project, Shabaka Hutchings demonstrates that he has become an essential musician of our time, and "Your queen is a reptile" of Sons Of Kemet is by far his most successful album, his masterpiece.

9/10
