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)

Favorites: Rigamortis, ADHD, and HiiiPower.
Great debut, Hol' Up is my fav, but ADHD, Keisha's song and Hiii Power are strong. some weak songs, and a bit inconsistant, but as mentioned, could be another artist's masterpiece
Fav. Tracks: Fuck Your Ethnicity, A.D.H.D., HiiiPower.
This album introduced me to Kendrick Lamar. Hiii power is a contender for song of the decade IMO.
Awesome album. Ab-Soul's Outro is my favorite song on the album.
I've been sleeping on this album a lot. Maybe his least consistent, but some excellent storytelling at the sake of album flow
Though not his best work, it still has some fire ass songs (ADHD, Tammy's Song, Ronald Reagan Era)
It is just amazing how Kendrick can impress me. This album is often seem as a minor on his career, but I mean, everything that made him big is already here, altough in a lesser scale. The jazzy beats, the narrative lyrics, the social commentaries.
I think the only thing that didn't turn this into one It his best works, was the fact that Kendrick holds his influences on his sleeves, Eminem and especially Kanye can be heard echoeing here. I mean "Hiiipower" is like an alternative version of kanye's "POWER".
Like Outkast, Eminem and Kanye, Kendrick shows us how catchy rap can be, and how hip hop can live on its own without help.
The sheer brilliance of GKMC and TPAB shouldn't make us undervalue Section.80, which is pretty great on its own merits and one of the best debut albums to come out of the hip hop genre. ADHD and Keisha's song are both highlights, and Hiiipower is to this day one of my top 5 Kendrick songs ever. Yes, overall it may not be as good as his next two albums, but I actually think it's at the very least better than DAMN.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
