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 BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.9/100, a mean average of 79.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

The best total rap sound of all time. Meaning, the combination of beats and back and forth rhymes is so complex and frenetic and interesting, it’s almost impossible to imagine a better rap production.

Which is not to say these are the best rap *songs* ever. But it’s really damn good.

Killer Mike's ferocious delivery and lyrics fit together with El-P's production to make a nice hardcore hip hop package. El-P really surprised me here, it's not an easy task to match Killer Mike. I don't get the general detestation for the tracks All My Life and Love Again, since I found these to be among my favorites on the album. The production on All My Life is a high point personally.

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.
