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 2% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

Got recommended this album from my econ teacher while in hs and it's been one of my favorite records for years. Great concept, rapping and production and deserves a lot more praise.

An extremely creative and interesting listen throughout that has a lot of great songs scattered throughout. What really drags me into this record though is the concept as it is unique and very ambitious to attempt something like this as they are running a huge risk of it being bland as they are caging themselves in a little but they completely break down these walls and go beyond what I ever thought possible on this record. It is fun, engaging and consistently good for the whole run time. There is no song that I sat there and thought this is a bit repetitive nor did I ever get sucked out of the flow of the record. The flow does struggle a little with all the short interludes we get as they can stall the record a bit at times but they never over stay their welcome that badly. The lyrics are smart and witty and the delivery is brilliantly punchy. Then there is the sampling which is integrated perfectly and are so much fun to spot and explore. They give each song an edge and makes the music feel more in depth. The beats are phenomenal as well and sound fresh to this day. Overall, I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this record and I am very much looking forward to a lot more listens in the future.

A perfect storm. Great and interesting concept, production is cosmic, yet never overpowers Del. It's also impressive to write a "hip hopera" of this magnitude and NOT the make the lyrics corny as hell.

First of all, there's technically just 12 songs so I don't know why I see a comment about how there's 21 tracks and it's too long lol.
This is just an epic record. Very creative. It took me a couple listens of a few tracks before I decided to plunge into the whole record. I also had to listen to I Wish My Brother George Was Here (Del the Funkee Homosapien) and 3rd Eye Vision (Hieroglyphics) before I could get started. But in the end I was not disappointed.

Hip hop supergroup Deltron 3030, consisting of MC Del the Funky Homosapien, producer exraordinaire Dan the Automator, and DJ Kid Koala, makes the case on this self-titled, post-apocalyptic concept album that hip hop has as much potential for considering possible futures as it does for expressing the gritty reality of urban life. Although Del lacks the vocal range of many of his contemporaries, he does have a gift for the clever rhyme. But it's really the complex instrumentation, attention to melody, and creative beats that make this album truly special, and among the greatest hip hop records ever made. The best track here is probably "3030," a song that swells with a full string section and a chorus of backup singers in way that transcends genre altogether. I had the privilege of seeing these guys perform live in front of a brewery in Bozeman, Montana, of all places, and it was clear to me that Deltron 3030, rather than being about posturing, is a group of artists who are fundamentally all about the music.

One of my favourite hip hop albums. So creative and catchy at the same time. Favourite songs: Virus, Turbulence and Mastermind.

Nah unfortunately I just cannot get into this album; at 21 tracks it’s way too long and by the end over stays it’s welcome

I can definitely see why a lot of people see this as a classic, but i found the flow a little bit boring, the lyrics and themes were pretty cool though! I'll give it another listen soon
