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 72.0/100, a mean average of 71.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

One of the most interesting concept albums, from Glover playing the character in the press to the screenplay that goes with it. Love how the album and songs are grouped together and how it really flows like a story.

Just gave this a listen for the first time in ages. There's still nothing like it. This is, in my opinion, a masterpiece and the best thing Donald Glover has ever done, at least musically (if we include everything, Atlanta and Community are in the discussion). Words can't do justice to how much I love this thing.

Not without its highlights, but Awaken My Love is far and away better than this

God damn, Pitchfork...
“The best thing about the album is the production”...
AS IF THAT’S CRITICISM. This is why I sometimes hate Pitchfork; they literally said “a big part of the music is great: 5.5/10”. How does that shit make sense? Unless you think the message is the most important part of music.

Honestly, I have no fucking idea what any of the messages on the songs are (I might one day look into it), but since that’s not part of the music:
I love the production too, I also love Gambino’s flow from time to time. Nothing too original musically, though. So 8/10.

This is a very good album i am noticing though that on repeated listens i tend to like it a little less than my initial reaction. Still a great work of art.

Childish Gambino has an interesting project here. Raps mixed with chill beats flow nicely.
