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 has a Bayesian average rating of 69.7/100, a mean average of 68.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

(Excellent east Coast Gangsta Rap EP. I like the old school flow and feel of the whole project and some of the songs are really incredible and stand outs. I am a bit late to the Benny The Butcher/Harry Fraud/Griselda party, but this was an excellent introduction.)

Before this afternoon I had never heard any Benny the Butcher, nor any Griselda, nor did I know anything about the major players on this album or scene. To say I am out of date on almost all things Hip Hop would be an understatement.

Today I listened to The Plugs I Met 1 and 2 several times. It was excellent and I enjoyed every minute. The style of Benny is right up my alley. Vivid, grimy tales of the street, unrelenting yet dexterous flow, I gobbled this up.

At the end of The Plugs I Met there is a nice Coda to the story, the woman leaving the voice message seemed relieved that Benny had found a new profession and she no longer had to worry about cops coming and knocking in their doors. It was a touching and smart way to end that project. With this sequel, it seems the vivid tales of that life is more from the p[erspective of someone looking back on the old days. The progression seems to make sense as I listen.

The Plugs I Met 2 I feel is better in almost evry way than the first. The production is bigger and more epic, and while the rapping is the same level of badass, I found myself vibing with it more. The features on 2 are not quite as great as on the first one. Still, even in this regard, there are some amazing guests here, especially the Chinx feature on album standout "Overall".

The production is so beautiful, truly gorgeous. I adore the sadness of the track "No Instructions". The horn on the opener "When Tony Met Sosa" took the already near perfect track to another level. The entirety of "Overall" is transcendent, but those deeeep bass tones are god tier to my ears. The female vocals that dominate the track "Survivor's Remorse" creates such a lush and emotive vibe. There are so many cool little details on this album/EP and I suppose I feel Harry Fraud did awesome here.

The rapping, well, I like them. I don't have much nuance in my rapping critiques in general. I am pretty basic. But I know when I hear some old school flows and, like Dylan once said, I know what I like. Benny is cool as hell and at times I'll hear a turn of phrase or a moment of lyrical imagery that will blow my mind. I am glad I have finally discovered him, cuz he is amazing.

Overall, this was great. I like short albums. This is is short, no filler or fat, every track is good to great. The peaks ("Overall", "Plug Talk", "When Tony Met Harry", and "Survivor's Remorse") are some of my fave tracks of the year. So far this is easily my fave Hip Hop album of the year.
