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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

This still gets better with every listen. We're going to be talking about this album for a very long time
An album that is packed full of experimentation and risks that pay off for the most part on the album. The whole vibe of the record is created brilliantly. Right from the start you are engulfed in this apocalyptic world the artist has created for us and you are kept in there right until the conclusion. Sonically, it is challenging and really pushes the boundaries of what we know as hip hop. They are completely unravelling a style of music in front of us and it is beautiful to experience even though it is quite an abrasive and rough album. The darkness and haunting nature of the record is phenomenal and on every track this is displayed. However, some tracks are filler and feel unnecessary to the release. Also, it can feel a bit messy at times just down to the experimentation where they hold nothing back. Overall, one of the most unique modern albums in a while and one that is so much fun to explore due to its high quality.
O glitch é mto boa. Quebra já o bem maleável hip-hop.
A phenomenal deconstruction of hip hop songwriting. An existential requiem of loss and turbulence. Each track is like watching the group use disparate parts to craft something beautiful and compelling, only to knock it back down by the end. Before long, it gets under your skin in the best possible way.
If indeed ‘BTTIGTP’ turns out to be Injury Reserves swan song following the extremely sad passing of core member Stepa J. Groggs in June of 2020 then what a stunning way to not only pay tribute but leave a legacy with a landmark experimental hip hop album for the ages that pushes the musical boundaries of what we might understand as a “song” or “music” in a traditional sense. It lays the ground zero (pun intended) platform for the next generation of hip hop geniuses to push the gene into ever more deconstructed territory and that is an extremely exciting prospect
I’m not rating ‘BTTIGTP’ here in early 2022 because actually its story and legacy hasn’t been written yet. If I’m still around in 10 years remind me to give this album a rating ( betcha a dollar its 90+)
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Some cool sounding shit. Packed with abrasiveness and intensity while never letting the listener get into too much of a singular rhythm. Kind of all over the place but it works for the most part. Never been too familiar with the group before this release so some of the emotion of the album may be lost on me but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
Damn. If this isn't album of the year, I don't know what is.
Best way to tribute Stepa J.Groggs, what a surprising record!
Haunting and beautiful
