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 BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.1/100, a mean average of 78.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.8.

Dunno about some of the comments. This is grade A 90s, regardless of genre. There's plenty storytelling in here to keep any average hip hop person interested, coupled with beats and production that perfectly matches the scarface cinematic carry on. The genius of the RZA in the 90s was how he perfectly matched the production on each solo project to the mc. 90s classic. Hip hop royalty. Chocolate deluxe.
This feels so slow and elongated compared to other albums around at the time of the making of this one. The flow is great and the production is of a very high quality, but it just doesn't come together for me. There is a lot of filler on here with most of it that could be cut out completely to make the record feel more compact. I do find myself losing concentration on this album so often and I really cannot stay focused on the music. There just doesn't seem to be enough to explore or to hook me for me to stay engaged. Overall, this is quite a boring listen in my opinion and without a couple aspects and songs which are great this album would really struggle.
Honestly, a good rap lp
Ditou a regra para o rap!
It misses that ODB chaos factor, but otherwise this is really a consolidation of what's best about Wu-Tang in the first place.
Why break up the group if you're all gonna sound the same. I like his style since the late '00s much more; it sounds more genuine and his own.
As good as Liquid Swords, almost as good as 36 Chambers. Stellar.
Good, would be better if it wasn't so long. Production is good, great often times. I think the album suffers a bit from age, like most 90s hip-hop it just sounds so dated that the test of time hasn't been completely fair to this album.
Best Wu album for me and RZA's most solid production.
First CD I bought. Mad nostalgia points.
