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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.4/100, a mean average of 74.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.4.

The best way I can describe Yeezus is Death Grips without any balls, spontaneity, or caution. If you need a good laugh, just listen the first four tracks, because those are laughably bad and after that it just gets bad. Some of the songs have their moments, namely Black Skinhead, Bound 2, and New Slaves. They fall apart so quickly though. Overall, this is the first Kanye West album I've heard that was actually bad. It's really bad.

It can be the perfect album, everything is in harmony here. Kanye is a true genius.

I liked MBDTF but Yeezus goes much much further as an album. It's like this verse,
You see, there's leaders and there's followers. But I'd rather be listening to Yeezus than MBDTF.

An album that is very different from the other album from Kanye's catalogue. With style switching from heavy metal to soft pop sample like on the track "bound 2" this album is very captivating.

I reviewed this album six years ago. Told you all how much I hated it. I was wrong. I wasn't ready in 2013. It's brilliant.

Overall: 9.2

Top Tracks: "On Sight", "Black Skinhead", "Bound 2"

Abrasive as all hell, and definitely the least accessible Kanye album. Still, every track gets the job done in terms of making you as uncomfortable as possible, and the energy never lags.
