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 84.8/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 85.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

Best rap album of the day
Muy buen disco!!!!!
As inserções de jazz são insanas! Obra-prima!
One of the best rap albums in existence. The flow is just perfect, and the tracks are great.
East coast hip-hop. Alternative rap like The Fugees and jazz-rap like De La Soul. Attractive, but quite modest. The debut is much more inventive, fun and interesting.
I'm usually less enthusiastic about East Coast hip hop records, because the emphasis is usually on lyricism and less focus is put on the beats. But when both are executed nearly flawlessly, it's a bit of heaven.
Put this on, you'll have one of the most chilled out days of your life.
not really my thing but i can see the appeal
I've always had a major affinity for A Tribe Called Quest, initially because they created a brand of cerebral hip hop that appealed to both my artistic and political sensibilities. I'll miss the playful rhymes Phife Dawg brought to classic compositions such as "Buggin' Out," "Excursions," and "Scenario," and I'll always think of him in my pantheon of the great hip hop emcees. Rest in peace.
great album the beats are bumping and shaking throughout and Fife and Q Tip are spitting truth throughout
essential tracks Scenario, Check the Rhime,
