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 1% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.7/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

This is miles better than the first Run The Jewels, and even that was pretty decent. The production is a lot more fulfilled, the melodies are banging and the lyrics are swell. Makes me wonder if RTJ3 is gonna be able to top it.

Best track: Early. Even the slightly cheesy Pacman sample can't dampen it.

It’s not bad hip hop, but it’s not amazingly good either. Their sound is a bit outdated, early ‘00s I’m guessing. But time and time again it seems like outdated music is what music critics love. Why? Probably because it’s safe music to make.

First 4 tracks are an agressive feast that gets in your ears and smashes your brain with El-ps production and Killer Mikes attacking flow. Then All My Life Ruins it, and the rest of the album doesnt match the first 4 tracks.

El-P and Killer Mike pack one hell of a punch in their short yet oh so sweet second LP "Run The Jewels 2". In less than 39 minutes, they tackle a huge range of matters with intelligence, clarity and focus. The production is killer and the lyricism is astounding and this remains so throughout the entirety of the album. A breath of fresh air.

A non stop hype train. Easily the most aggressive Run The Jewels album.
