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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.2/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.1.

Most of the good stuff happens in the first half, so I say this album is too long, but I can't deny how amazingly it is produced, ultimate west-coast feeling.
Whoa baby, man has this album not aged well in the 31 years since realise
‘The Chronic’ is chock full of misogynistic and extreme sexism against women , strongly promotes gun violence and violence in general, glorifies incarceration and contains purile snickering school boy humour in the form of offensive & unfunny skits. Pretty much everything I detest in the world
HOWEVER . . . .
I am a believer in freedom of speech and in particular an artists right to demonstrate artistic expression. I also understand there’s a market for this sort of stuff with plenty of fans
The Album Itself = 20/100
Artist Expression + Cultural Impact = 40 / 100
Equals = 60/100 Overall
I never been more ashamed to love an album. Base and degrading in almost every way but some of the tunes are absolutely flawless.
I can dig this stuff..
Absolute classic. For me, one of the most influential hip hop albums ever. After the break up of gangsta-rap group N.W.A., Dr. Dre came with this banger, introducing the G-Funk sound. Very catchy sounds, superb flows and an almost perfect production.
I don't like this very much but yes the production is amazing especially for its time. Some of the content is wack. Fuck Wit Dre Day is no longer relevant... This album is still a classic and I enjoy a lot of the instrumentals better.
Best tracks: Lil' Ghetto Boy, Nuttin But a G Thang
This album brought West Coast rap to so many MTV-generation white kids. Bonus points for George Clinton worship.
Levou o rap para onde ele está hoje. Comercial, referências do funk, ganchos e pontes.
Fav. Tracks: Fuck Wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin'), Let Me Ride, The Day The Niggaz Took Over, Nuthin' But A "G" Thang, A Nigga Witta Gun, Stranded On Death Row, Bitches Ain't Shit.
