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 71.8/100, a mean average of 71.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

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.

this album goes beyond concept. you see, the problem with concept albums is that you can't always listen to tracks separately, you need to listen to the full piece. but donald achieved something great with this one. it's perfect (and ironic?) for a party, it's perfect for when you're feeling lonely, for when you just want to listen to some flow, for when you're just chillin in your room, not necessarily alone... it's really underrated tbh
