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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.4.

Oh ma gawd! For my money the best hip hop record ever. Hard as hell, smart and catchy.

How does a Tribe Called Quest follow up 1991's seminal 'The Low End Theory' ? With the remarkable 'Midnight Marauders' 2 years later

Essential west coast rap from one of the 90's most important artists

Definitely one of my big inspirations and one that sets me off down the path of jazz rap and East Coast glory!

Not a huge hip hop guy, but this is easily my favorite hip hop album I've heard so far, I was skeptical of Jazz Rap going into this but it sounds great.

A hip hop that feels otherworldly. Even thought the 90's had a lot of hip hop record that had this style. Being jazzy and dreamy. Not my favorite hip hop record of the year, but comes in a close second. Favorites include 8 Million Stories, Midnight, We Can Get Down, Electric Relaxation and The Chase Part II.
