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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.5/100, a mean average of 79.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.3.

Kanye West is on fire on this release with this sounding like someone who is determined and hungry for success. We get tracks like Through The Wire, Jesus Walks, All Falls Down and We Don't Care being the evidence for this as they demonstrate everything that is great about Kanye. The features on this album are fantastic as well and elevate the music so much. This is definitely one of his more consistent releases and his ideas stay fresh the whole way through on here. Despite this, there is a significant amount of filler with just less than half the tracks being skippable as they are mediocre. The run time is another issue I have also as there isn't an hour and 16 minutes worth of content on here and it could be reduced. Overall, this is probably Kanye's most consistent release and his passion for music shines through on this release which makes it one of his most enjoyable to listen to.
I tend to find myself surprised, repeatedly, by the creativity behind the rhymes and flow in Kanye’s flow. Strong debut album.
One of the best debuts off all time. Kanye West's College Dropout set the tone for Rap, and marks a switch in rap as popular music, and he is definately top 5 ever in my book. Tracks like Jesus Walks, All Falls Down, Through the wire, Family Business, and my fav: Slow Jamz are classics, still today. Some weak points, and i personally think some of the takes on the school spirit skits are plain wrong, but that doesn't distract from the point that this is a masterpiece. Kanye may be crazy, may be a Genius, but his discography proves he is a musical Genius. 9/10
El debut de Kanye y no podría ser para menos. Pese a que tenga muchos interludios, se siente que todos aportan al concepto del album y tiene muy buenas canciones, siendo mis preferidas Through the Wire, All Falls Down y Jesus Walks. Hasta ahora me parece el segundo mejor disco de Kanye, después de MBDTF.
This album is probably Kanye's best. The chipmunk soul production is on full display and Ye sounds so hungry. Incredible features as well.
Some great tracks on this. Not a fan of albums that contain too many filler 40-second tracks (I don't see what it adds personally), but the sheer quality and consistency of the full-length tracks make up for this for me. One of my favourite rap albums ever. Highlights are Through The Wire, Slow Jamz and Jesus Walks.
- We Don't Care
- Spaceship (Feat. Consequence & GLC)
- Jesus Walks
- Never Let Me Down (Feat. Jay-Z & J. Ivy)
- The New Workout Plan
- Slow Jamz (Feat. Twista & Jamie Foxx)
- Through The Wire
- Family Business
- Last Call
Great album, but the skits on this album make me lower my ranking
Kanye changed the Hip Hop landscape with this album.
Produção insana, revolucionária! Quantas faces da música negra unidas!
