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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.8.

Manual de instrução para quase todo bom hip hop que veio depois disso. Além de farta influência do R&B e pop!

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.

When auto tune started being used as a voice effect rather then a tool to make shitty singers sound slightly better

"I'm just not there in the streets..." heartbreaking and innovative record where Kanye dared to dabble in electropop and fully embrace autotune. It alienated a lot of people, especially his hip-hop fanbase, but stands tall in retrospect as one of the most influential records in the past decade.

Some good stuff here. Influential as it is, that doesn't make it a great album. Other projects took the sound and made it better. The second half of the album is really not good.

Groundbreaking album that shaped hip hop' autotune phase for years to come. Love Lockdown is in my top 3 Kanye track of all time.
