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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.0.

My first Kayne album, my favorite Kanye album. Waves of nostalgia come flooding back with every listen. Some of the best sampling in history.
Best song(s): "Good Morning" "Stronger" "I Wonder" "Good Life" "Can't Tell Mee Nothing" "Flashing Lights" "Homecoming" (one of my favorites of all time)
Better than I was expecting it to be. The samples are consistently the best part of every song, though, and even then they get pretty annoying about halfway into each song. Just makes me want to listen the actual songs. Kanye is one of the least charismatic performers I've heard in a while.
Great album. Not as good as Kanye's first two albums but a very solid end to the "College Trilogy" or whatever you call it. There are a few weak songs in the middle but overall there is a great flow and a few of the songs are easily some of Kanye's best.
Favorite Tracks: Flashing Lights, Everything I Am, Homecoming, Stronger.
Top Tracks: "Stronger", "Flashing Lights", "Homecoming"
Solid pop album.
This album along with Tha Carter III and 808s are the blueprint for modern hiphop
Only listened to this album in Sept 18 off the back of 808s & Heartbreaks and College Dropout - but this album is much better for me and bursts right into my top 10 ahead of many albums I have known and loved for decades - such is the quality of this album. From the start of the album he delivers great track after great track - smart beats and lyrics and great sampling including Daft Punk.
I love every single track on this album, but give an extra nod to Homecoming and Big Brother - the later all about his relationship with mentor Jay Z.
Can't agree with where his head is at the moment, but can't deny the quality of music he has delivered.
Stadium status indeed. Probably my least favorite of his first three albums, but pretty damn good still. Good Life, Can't Tell Me Nothing, and Flashing Lights are classics.
This album is a like a crater, high points at the beginning and the end with a low point in the center.
Wish I had this album back in 07. Always remembered that I adored a good chunk of this album when this was on the radio.
The only Kanye West album I've been able to listen to all the way through.
