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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.7/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

This was a cool one. Not my favorite album, but I liked pretty much every song. I don't think I have any highlights, but I was consistently vibing with it. I am a fan.

Finally doing what she's always threatened to do. Not just her best album but quite possibly the best album of 2019. Jaw dropping!

Good album, it sounds like hip hop has to sound in 2019. I wouldn't rate it to the top albums, but it is of course a decent rap album. "Boss" is also a masterpiece, "Therapy" and "Sherbet Sunset" are also very good, but there are also some filler songs.

Good shit, but sounds like stuff that could've been released in the '00s without the fun of '00s hip hop. Not production-wise of course, but the structure of the beats and the flow. I'm just gonna say it, she sounds a lot like Missy Elliott. She makes it work though.

Is it my fault that it took me so long to check this out? SHUT UP!! Can't we focus on how undeniably awesome and tight this album is? Can't we discuss how much of a revelation Little Simz is?

Anyway, this is great. One of the year's best.

If she goes more Soul and R&B in the next album, it would be amazing like the song selfish

Every song in here is cool. Little Simz makes her mark as a name to look out for in hip hop here.
