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 BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.2/100, a mean average of 77.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

I had almost forgotten that Flying Lotus came from prime jazz stock until this album reminded me full-force. It demands to be listened to in its entirety, if only for the fact that shuffle would screw up the order of all of the little one-minute sketches.

Best track: Never Catch Me. Kendrick Lamar seems to be the guy to collaborate with these days. Cracking beats here.

Flying Lotus is the most prominent innovator of hip-hop and electro, generally recognized as the heir of J Dilla in the small world of avant-garde beats. After four albums, FlyLo, whose real name is Steve Ellison, decides to distance himself a little from his habits to venture into a genre with which he has always flirted: jazz. But for this album, he needs help. For example, Thundercat's fingerprints are everywhere on "You're Dead!", Mostly in its avalanches of bass notes. Among the collaborators, there is also Herbie Hancock (!), Iconoclast of jazz. Death seems to weigh on the shoulders of Flying Lotus since "Cosmogramma", his awesome 2010 album. Even if "You're Dead!" has a cheerful side, he is totally haunted by the subject of death. If the intention with this album was to do something important before his time on Earth is over, we can talk about an accomplished mission.

9/10

Best track: "Never Catch Me [ft. Kendrick Lamar]"

Quite honestly I struggle to describe how good this album is. I don't listen to that much really modern music so this currently ranks up there as one of the best albums of this decade for me. It's the sort of fusion that really gets me going. Ellison is just an absolute god at taking the best elements of jazz, hiphop and electronic styles and creating an utter masterpiece. The album is just radiating, bursting with energy... it's such a riot, such a journey. Floaty, dreamy layered melodies, distant harmonies, rich bass lines with intricate textures and melodies of their own, massive sounds, the energy and delicacy of jazz. It's something you can listen to in an ambient way, or pay full attention and totally sink into it. The experimental approaches are really so freakin fantastic and wacky and incredible and humbling and exciting. I don't really mind the varying lengths of tracks and there's real momentum to the whole experience. My favourite tracks are definitely Turkey Dog Coma and Never Catch Me. Just all round, simply astounding.

A step down from the glorious "Cosmogramma", but FlyLo still manages to conjure up an impressive record with splashes of IDM, jazz and experimental hip-hop making "You're Dead!" an eclectic treat. "Never Catch Me" featuring Kendrick is stunning, and although one can argue that a lot of these short tracks are unsatisfying by themselves, they all coalesce to craft an entire journey which really works.

An interesting listen for sure. Hard to categorize. It's still not quite clicking for me like Cosmogramma has. It seems to be wandering around the whole time, while Cosmogramma was always going somewhere.

However, props for having one of the coolest album covers ever, imo.

many great ideas that build up to a impression you get, of what Flying Lotus sees in death.

Easy listening, mixed with experimental, mixed with rap, mixed with... hehe. This must've been a fun project. With such a mix of stuff, I'm both tantalized and overwhelmed to boredom.

Never Catch Me is incredible. It's all good on this album, but Never Catch Me, man that is a quality song.

I was really really torn between 90/100 or 95/100 on this album but in the end I had to go for 95. Incredible mix of genres, all done amazingly. Hip-hop, electronica, dance, pop, JAZZ, JAZZ, JAZZ. This album is a true journey from start to finish, with wild experimentation to really nice chilled out vibes to bouncing hip-hop influenced beats. All vocals added on this album are placed to perfection and are really the cherry on top. I think this album just edges Cosmogramma purely due to the amount of talent and different ideas on display and executed with brilliance. This album is the sonic equivalent of a 3 course meal cooked for you by the worlds top 5 chefs but for your ears. But if i absolutely had to flaw, again like other Flying Lotus releases, some songs are a little too long and tedious and then some songs are far too short and leave me wanting more of the same which is difficult due to the sheer amount of different ideas and genres on show. This flaw is extremely minor when it comes to how much of a unique masterpiece this album is. One of my favourite albums and Flying Lotus is becoming one of my favourite ever artists.
