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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 75.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.1.

I like Kanye but this is more than a bit distracted and disjointed. Some amazing snippets baked into the cake though.

Its alright by Kanye standards, which means a really good album by normal standards. Would rank it around 5th in Kanyes discograph. High points are "Black Skinhead", "Hold my liquor", "Blood on the leaves" and for me personaly "Bound 2". The production gets a bit tiring throughout which is a bad thing for me, and therefore i think its worse than some of his other works

When it's good, it's great. It even makes up for his dumb ass lyrics and his awkward vocals.
Yes, I am being very harsh.

Por fin, acá está!! El YEEZUS de Kanye.
Después de meses escuchando solo Bound 2 me aventuré a escucharlo completo, ya que una vez en el pasado lo había tratado de escuchar pero me aburrí y lo quité como en la canción 4 o 5. Es un album muy divisorio. Aún no me llega a gustar la opening track, On Sight, por más que sea muy valorada por los fans de Kanye, simplemente no es mi estilo, y eso me daba un recuerdo de que el album estaba malo. No necesariamente es cierto, porque esta irónicamente es mi canción menos preferida del album, quizás solo sobre la penúltima canción, Send It Up, que me pareció demasiado olvidable pese a que hayan muchas samples. En fin, a Kanye se le da esto de hacer un collage con diversos artistas y algunas veces le resulta magnífico así como en Bound 2, mi canción preferida absoluta del Yeezus, y otras veces le queda un desastre como unas pocas canciones de este disco que mejor no menciono para no sonar muy hater. Pero en realidad cuando digo pocas hablo de 2 o 3 a lo mucho, porque el disco la verdad que me parece disfrutable. Un disco promedio para el nivel de Kanye, porque los hitazos como Blood on the Leaves o Black Skinhead tampoco me parecen obras maestras, pero repito sí son muy disfrutables. En fin, me llena haberla terminado de escuchar y pues, como ven en el rating, no me parece una obra maestra para mi gusto y no se acerca a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy; aunque hay que aceptar que el disco es una locura. Tan solo ver a muchos fans del Ye que lo consideran su favorito ya es demasiado. Un saludo a los fans de ye y los invito a ver en Youtube el video oficial de Bound 2. Peace.

Kanye at his most abrasive and confident. Hard to the ears at first but once you let go of wanting to hear MBTF part 2, it opens up to be quite a cool record. I dont think he has been able to be as cohesive or coherent in a project since.

I used to listen to this album as a way to get myself psyched up for job interviews when i was nervous, it worked.
Though the "sweet and sour sauce" line is just a tad too much ye

Probably my second favorite of Kanye's. Not all of the songs are perfect, but it has so much really dope stuff throughout. Black Skinhead, New Slaves, and Bound 2 are all highlights.

I expected it'd be better than Graduation, since it's more popular. I really like the cover art. Some synths doesn't sound fresh, timbres that didn't aged so well.

Good 7/10
Best track: Hold My Liquor

It's strange, loud and angry...
You might not like it at first, but over time, it'll grow on you.
I won't say it's his best album, but it's still pretty good!
The best song is Bound 2.

Not my favorite direction for Kanye, nor my favorite collection of tracks. But he's consistently more compelling and interesting than most.
