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 70.7/100, a mean average of 69.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

Lil Nas X’s greatest strength has always been self-awareness. He has always known what he was about and what to do with that. “Montero” gains strength from his sexuality and anxiety about success. “Industry Baby” is a self-affirming banger about overcoming one hit wonder status. The Jack Harlow feature is hilarious and has great charisma with X. “That's What I Want” is breezy, catchy, and extremely effective at getting the message out. Unfortunately, the album is limited by its production and lyrical depth. Lil Nas X’s voice is a far too clean. The smoothness makes the serious moments sound chipper and the more excited moments feel almost like parody. The lyrics pose interesting ideas about self-exploration and relationships but are only one or two lines deep. Longer verses could have really helped flesh feelings and boost emotional impact. “Am I Dreaming” is a weak ending with its briefness and the purposeless Miley Cyrus feature. “Montero” shows that despite its flaws, Lil Nas X is going to stick around for a while.

Good album from Lil Nas X, never thought I would like this that much. Loved That's what I want, Lost in the citadel and tales of dominica.

A bit overproduced, that's all, but this guy has nice tunes. He's shown succesfully that he's not a one-trick pony and that he's in it for the long run, and I'm rooting for him. I hope he keeps subverting and trolling the hip hop culture until the day he retires.

This was significantly better than I expected. It's pop rap so I expect it to be thoroughly panned by this community which is fine. That's ok. Lil Nas X will keep doing his thing.

It's fun, it's honest, it's relatable. There's some childish gambino vibes, there's some chance the rapper vibes, there's some already dated trap sounding beats. There's some guilty pleasure lyrics that I legitimately laughed at.

It's probably not going to win over a lot of Lil Nas X skeptics, but it won me over.
