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 82.3/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

This felt life my ears were running barefoot on a treadmill at max speed while simultaneously cooking bacon...
The album is very much a package of system overload to the ears. Death Grips are just unloading pallets of sonically charged production and beats that you kinda don't know what to focus on first.
I personally like to focus on the lyrics and potential story of hip hop tracks, which was somewhat of an impossible task during this album's listen given the compressed drumming, paranoid synths, and stream of lyrics and hooks coming at me from every direction. I also had a hard time thinking which songs were my favorites because by the time the 8th song was finished, I couldn't distinguish one from another.
Next time I'll try and listen with lyrics in front of me, though I'm not exactly rushing to relisten to the album.
There's definitely an interesting sound here, it just hits you like a tidal wave before you can figure out what that particular sound is.
Until I can figure that out, I'll give this a 72/100
Look I get that it's creative and original.... but I just don't like it at all... and I like hip hop. This noise gets over 80 in ratings for 2010s release? What a joke... probably too electronic for me.
definition of outstanding
Fav. Tracks: Get Got, The Fever (Aye Aye), Hustle Bones, System Blower, Bitch Please, Hacker.
Best: Get Got, The Fever, Lost Boys, I've Seen Footage, System Blower, Punk Weight, Hacker
Worst: Fuck That
An apocalyptic tidal wave of structured cacophony wrapped in a tight 40 minute package.
The Money Store has a terrific balance and flow to it, on top of a list of incredible songs in and of themselves. Each time I listen, I hear another set of sounds I wasn't focused in on the last time, or I'll hear one of MC Ride's lyrics in a new light. Oh and Zach Hill. It has Zach Fucking Hill.
While it might not hit as hard as other material in their catalog, and it's not the quirkiest record they ever made, I think it's the best listen top to bottom. But that's just me. They've established a great catalog up til now.
Fav. Tracks: Get Got, System Blower, Bitch Please, Hacker.
I've Seen Footage
The Fever (Aye Aye)
favorite part: " THE TABLES FLIPPED NOW WE GOT ALL THE COCONUTS BITCH"
This is the musical equivalent of getting run over by a cement mixer.
