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 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.4.

I said 36th chamber was better at some point. Oops. A pure vintage that matures with age. The ultimate pairing of MC and producer. This slays even the best. Line after line. if you don't think this is at the pinnacle then you possibly haven't given it enough plays. I be the body dropper, heartbeat stopper, child educator plus head amputator...

So strong. Shows how much talent there is/was in Wu-Tang.

This is an essential listen. This sounds like the sequel to 36 Chambers that we didn't know we needed, but we're glad to have.

imho Kind of an overrated album in the hiphop industry, and Wu-Tang discussion, but still a great listen though. I prefer Raekwon's debut, and some of Ghost's album over.
Favorite track: BIBLE

Best Wu-Tang solo album, and one of the best albums ever in general. Love the old martial arts theme, which this album takes use of way better than any other Wu-Tang related album I’ve heard. Awesome production from RZA as always.

There a feeling of eerie when listening to the whole record musically. It's like you think something is going to burst one but it isn't making you feeling somewhat paranoid. The lyrics further add on to the eerie and GZA does it well.

This is most definitely the most chill and consistent album for a boom bap beat. Personally, i prefer this over 36 Chambers.
