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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.8/100, a mean average of 73.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

I appreciate how Kanye is envelope-pushing here, but it's not my favorite collection of tracks.
So so so influential
It's entirely different, and yet again he pulls it off, once again influencing the sound of the genre.
Tbh, this is my favorite of Kanye's solo albums
Kanye played a big part in the sound of modern hip hop/r&b and this album was the key. The mixing across the album is really great, as if he suddenly got the ability to mix for stereo.. it's hard to explain. It's similar in ways to the way a lot of early 80s albums were mixed for hi-fi, very wide and sparse.
Manual de instrução para quase todo bom hip hop que veio depois disso. Além de farta influência do R&B e pop!
This is his best album ever, even in 2019 is one of the best i have ever seen, he's the best, the guy, yezus, thats why we love him.
Arguably Kanye's best album right behind Dark Twisted Fantasy. Not only was the album incredibly influential for the next generation of artists, but its incredibly heart and humanity make it an emotional listen every single time. Kanye bears his soul on this project.
Kanye invented a sound here that still goes on to shape hip-hop/r&b today.
