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 is rated in the top 2% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

OutKast - Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik has to be one of the most ridiculous album titles ever, though it goes without saying that's the only thing that's ridiculous about it. The debut album of the legendary duo that right off the bat introduces us to what 's about to unfold in front of us ("See that rap shit is really just like selling smoke If you got some fire shit, yo niggas gonna always toke"). By the way, what a year 1994 was for debut hip hop albums (Without thinking about it too much, Ready to Die, Illmatic, Word...Life, 6 Feet Deep and this, I'm sure there are more). You could point out some aspects of it that would get better further down the road of their career, but this is already a finished product, a complete artistic statement that differentiates itself from anything else that was going on at that point, no part of it is severely lacking whatsoever and it's fair to assume hip hop as a genre would be another world without it. For example, the production may not be as distinctive as in future attempts, but achieves a highly enjoyable combination of smooth and funky anyway. Also, you could argue their songwriting would get more mature further down the road - which is more or less the natural thing, what else would you expect, plus there are signs of their great storytelling here ("Y'know I do some things more different than I used to 'Cause I'm a player, doing what the players do The package store was closed, okay my day is ruined This is ridiculous, I'm getting serious, I'm getting curious 'Cause the house is smelling stank, the chitlins old as bitches I made no wishes cause I'm mobbing folk niggas in the back"). There are days I would call this my favorite OutKast record - this applies to almost all their albums - but it doesn't happen as often as with other parts of their discography.

Wow...70th for the year?

Far from their strongest album but very few debut records are this focused and well-executed.

I've only heard a couple songs by OutKast, but if this is their second worst, they have to be the most legendary hip hop group ever. I don't think I ever stopped banging my head along to the beat. Ain't No Thang, the title track, Player's Ball, and Crumblin' Erb should be absolute classics of mid 90s hip hop. I'm very excited to hear the rest of their discography, as I enjoyed this very much.

Maybe Outkast's best. Definitely their funkiest, featuring the amazing tracks Ain't No Thang and Crumblin' Erb

One of many amazing outkast albums. Outkast should be higher up in the all time chart. Much higher up.

Holy shit! I think this might be the best Outkast record. And of course it has to be there debut. Now I do love the hell out of Atliens as well as Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. But this is something else. Putting ATL on the map as well as feeling like a movie where the outsiders ventured in Atlanta.

I admit I don't know much about hip hop but I do know I like Outkast. A lot! This is a really upbeat and fresh album, and also very natural. It sounds like it was cooked outdoors, if that makes sense.
