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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.6/100, a mean average of 74.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

It’s a good album and for the most part, it’s a solid project. Is it the best J. Cole project? I think Friday Night Lights is better but this one is up there. He was smart to make project without any feats. I personally don’t like feats, when I hear a hip hop album, I’m there to hear it all from the artist that that had that creative vision to make it, not the feats. J. Cole produced this project and I would assume is his vision for the most part. He pulled through with some great songs and just be heard!
Best j.cole record PERIOD
Gets a lot of hate, doesn't have the deepest lyrics, doesn't have the most innovative production.
But what it does it does perfectly, melodic conscious rap that sounds as good as it can possibly sound, lyrics that anyone can relate with and music that anybody can vibe to. Perfect at what it sets out to do.
2014 Forest Hills Drive starts slow but as the album progresses the tone and the production really pick up. G.O.M.D in particular has a fantastic use of sampling. Cole has some good bars but often falls into weak rhyme schemes (A Tale Of 2 Citiez). Luckly, J. Cole's enthusiasm lifts the album through its difficult parts.
First 4-5 tracks are very good but it gets a little bit less interesting as it goes towards the end. Still a great album
Double platinum with no features
Fun album musically. Would be 100/100 if he only displayed more performance talent.
Enjoyable, for sure. Some really cool cuts on this. The use of orchestral instrumentation on this really gives it an emotional contrast. He is a very talented lyricist, which makes it consistently interesting to listen to. There are several tracks I could do without, they seem to serve no purpose but just to make it overlong. But other than that, a nice listen.
Best Tracks: A Tale of 2 Citiez, Fire Squad, No Role Modelz, Apparently.
Worst: Wet Dreamz, St. Tropez.
