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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

This is the album that made me appreciate hip-hop. Such a beautiful collection of tracks with some amazing features here. This album puts out really good vibes.

I don't listen to hip hop a whole lot, but I will make an exception for artists like nujabes! This helped change my mind about hip hop after growing up being tormented by hearing stuff like lil wayne and wiz Kalifa from everyone at school. Cise Starr, featured on "Feather" is my favorite rapper and I also really like his group CYNE.

I don't listen to hip hop a whole lot, but this is definitely my favorite hip hop album to listen to. Props to nujabes and all the great rappers he collaborated with

Finally broke the top 2000! This thing really deserves more attention. Easily should be in the top 500 at least.

Love this album so much. One of the best hip hop of the 2000's and one of the most overlooked albums of this decade.

Not quite up to the quality of Metaphorical Music, but another top-class instrumental hip-hop release from Nujabes.
