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 50.5/100, a mean average of 47.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 47.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.9.

"Certified Lover Boy" is far too bloated. The lyrical themes of entertainment dominance, people not wanting you to succeed, and sad love are stretched thin across 21 tracks. This robs identity from the songs and creates a blur of mundaneness. Through this sea of meh, a few islands of terrible rise up. "Girls Want Girls" is a gross fetishy song were Drake tries to convince lesbians to have sex with him and digresses into creepy mumbling. "Get Along better" may be the most passive aggressive song I've ever heard. It's almost 4 minutes of whining about how this girl had defended herself in an argument and he is closer with her friends. Chipmunk soul is a surprisingly common on the album and it's just not used well. It's not very tight and the high pitch nature makes songs unintentionally hilarious. The best example of this is the 'I love yous" on "Champagne Poetry". A positive track is definitely "No Friends in the Industry". The beat has simmering synths and Drake raps with genuine confidence. Despite the larger negativity discussed, the majority album is just mediocre. With the right writing and track size, I think it could have been a okay album. Unfortunately, it's so poorly handled that it ends in the red.

El álbum es lo suficientemente bueno para ser bueno, y lo suficientemente malo para ser malo, pero es más malo que bueno, le doi un 4/10

This is easily Drake's worst album. It's just so goddamn boring; so boring in fact that DJ Akademiks, one of the biggest Drake fans in the world, FELL ASLEEP on stream while listening to the album. No I'm not making that up, it's THAT boring
