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 has a Bayesian average rating of 74.3/100, a mean average of 73.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

I had a lot more tolerance for these sparse beats when I was a kid. Still like how the group sounds vocally, but the whole package got wearisome about 2/3 of the way through.

Bit too basic for my tastes - Hard Times, Wake Up and 30 Days aren't particularly impressive showcases of rapping or beats. There are some highlights though, Rock Box has some pretty great guitar work to compliment the energetic vocals, and Jay's Game is a classic example of 80's turntablism.

Run DMC finding their sound. Not quite Raising Hell, but still great early rap.
