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 has a mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

I know Fantano went off on the production. But honestly? That's my favorite part. It's very purposeful in its distant, breezy quality, and I can dig it being as effective as it is. That said, so many tracks on this lengthy record feel like half-finished ideas. It's like Glover wants to be Frank Ocean or Daniel Caesar, but instead of introspective and atmospheric, it just feels like stoner R&B--if you can even classify that as a thing. Maybe it's meant to feel open and free--which, sure--but that's pretty much the whole thing, save for some subtle variations here and there.
Not bad, by any means. Incredibly easy on the ears, and not without a few highlights. But it's a little too long and homogenous.
Got a few tracks in and stopped - not my cup of tea
It's unfair that one person has so much talent.
Better than what most critics rated it IMO. Liked Big foot and the last track a lot.
Lot of aphex twin vibes from this, call me crazy. It’s a wonderful array of true creativity and abstract ideas put together in a record. Some sounds are very well put together, and some are a bit loud and repetitive. After only two listens, I may not be able to fully understand some of Glover’s ideas, but I can definitely salute the route he has taken with this body of work.
For now at least a 7/10. I'm really digging the industrial, Gesaffelstein-ish vibe with Gambino's delightful pop harmonics and songwriting. His funk has gotten more dance-pop like Prince than the quasi-communal P-funk of "Awaken, My Love!". The immersive, "Around the World in a Day"-ish 24.19 is also great, but it was starting to get a bit too obvious at that point. But luckily he goes in all sorts of different directions after that.
Do I hear truly new things here? I don't think so, but that's better than a hard "no". I mean the fucking Nobel Prize to anyone who knows what the fuck 35.31 is. But I think that's the thing: he throws a lot of creative ideas at you, but I don't think he fully explores them.
As for insightful commentary: "seven billion people trying to save themselves", "to be happy, really means that someone else ain't"; I rest my case.
I love that he threw "Feels Like Summer" in there and gave it the same type of Aphex Twin-ish non-sensical track name so that you'd be actually surprised.
Only major comeback this year I'm really happily surprised by - well, only one I'm even somewhat surprised by, because the rest started repeating what they did in the early '10s.
I've listened to it three times now and I'm conflicted. I so badly wanna say this is a 10/10 album just because I love Gambino and I've been excited for this project since This is America was released (which isn't even on the record) But it just isn't what I thought it was going to be. I was thinking it'd be full of commentary similarly to This Is America and to a lesser extent his film Guava Island. It wasn't that though, it's not super concise with a theme which is very disappointing, I don't know what to takeaway from the record. There are songs that I enjoy though. Little foot is a bop and algorythm is spectacular.... but even with how much I enjoy these track they feel lacking. I desperately wanted Algorythm to have darker tones or thicker instrumentation, but it wasn't there. Honestly it boils down to me having too high expectations, but I do feel like he could've don better, even though I do enjoy the album. 7/10
Really interesting album. You can hear some Stevie Wonder sounds, Childish Gambino using a deeper voice, trippy stuff, at one point there's a Prince type song and by the end I was like what did I just listen to? Oh yeah Childish Gambino, I'll have to listen to it again because I liked it and it was quite a strange unique trip even for him.
