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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.4/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Ambitious and personal.
Damn I guess this album really isnt for me. Gave it many chances to finally click but i just dont see the hype. TPAB and GKMC are some of my fav rap albums of all time, im not a Kendrick hater by any means but as time passes this albums really grows off me. Like I was so hyped for it, woke up at 6am just to heart it first and dont let anyone tell me if its good or not before I hear it and i was surprised by direction he was going for, but i thought there really is a lot of replay value. However i was wrong, i rate this album strong 5 to a light 6 out of 10.
Definitely better than the last album IMO but a few too many filler type songs or songs that sound too similar. We Cry Together is like For Free from TPAB, It hits hard the first couple times and the message is effective, but you'll probably be skipping it on future listens. Kendrick releasing a new album is still an event and worth checking out for sure. It ends on a high note!

It's a good album, but it doesn't hit as hard as expected.
“Mr. Morale” lacks the cohesive sound of its predecessors. Without the G-funk or Jazz, it settles on a lower tempo mix of strings and samples. This quietness removes the record of any stand-out instrumentals. There are many memorable lyrics but I don’t know a beat would come to mind out of context. The languor of the instrumentals also negatively reflects on Kendrick’s voice. Without an inviting instrumental, an odd flow or bad delivery stands out a lot more. The best example of this is the chorus of “Purple Hearts” with its awkward conveyance of “Baby”.
The flaws are in a strange way of reinforcing the narrative theme. Therapy is a vulnerable and off-cuff state lacking in the smoothness of a planned expression. Kendrick’s lyrics are emotional and strange but endearing through this status. “Auntie Diaries” uses offensive language and dead naming but shows firsthand the environment he grew out from. “We cry together” is more of an ugly argument than a song, but its roughness is moving. I may not return to it often, but I’m glad to have listened to it.
Took me a few listens at first but this record has really grown on me. I love United in Grief, N95, Die Hard, Father Time, Count Me Out, and Mother I Sober.
Empezare diciendo que valió la pena la espera de 5 años sin álbum de estudio de Kendrick, 18 canciones que fluyen de una a otro de manera natural, con temas variados y cada vez más maduros en letras como infidelidad, religión, traumas, niñez, etc.
En los cuales Lamar se desenvuelve de una forma lírica que a mi parecer solo el sabe hacerlo, un artista en toda la expresión de la palabra.
De nuevo mezclando diferentes géneros como Jazz, Funk, R&B y obviamente Hip Hop, debo admitir que el Jazz Rap se ha convertido en mi Sub-género Favorito del Rap a raíz de escucharlo en Kendrick
El Disco dura más de 1 hora y la verdad no se siente por que el flow que tiene es muy bueno aparte de la calidad en la que la mayoría de las canciones son muy disfrutables y depende tu circunstancia pero estoy seguro te conectarás con más de una.
Los invitados con un desempeño excelente en general sobresaliendo en mi opinión : Taylour Paige, Amanda Reifer y Beth Gibbons
La Producción del disco es perfecta (otra vez), en general otro disco que sigue cimentando a Kendrick como uno si no es que el mejor Artista de esta generación.
Dense and lyrical, this is Kendrick's self-examination record as he delves deep into his own mind.
Good album, deep lyrics. Somehow I don't come back to it as often as the other Kendrick's projects.
