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 89.7/100, a mean average of 87.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.5.

Mais que um álbum! Um ato político!!
Still acclaimed than "Angelic 2 The Core" by Corey Feldman.
Probably the greatest hip hop album ever made, possibly the very best album in any genre.
rly good, but ways to be overrated
Kendrick's Magnum Opus, an essential listen regardless of whether you enjoy rap or not. Ripe with social commentary and insights into the life of young Black men in the United States during the 2010s. Lyrically, musically, and most importantly culturally impressive and impactful. "We gon' be alright" is basically the anthem for BLM.
There is nothing I could change from this album. This is perfection.
How can I express my love for this album, when it's meant to scar you?
Rap is a genre that I can never fully enjoy, it's not my type of music even tho there are songs that shine bright. But this, this is not just rap, this is not even just music. These are the thoughts of a man who isn't afraid to express his stands on this topic that is racism, inequality, discrimination, etc. The way the connects you to the scenario is strong, it's clear and it's devastating, Kendrick talks more about fear that anybody else, and the impotence he and almost everyone has. It's poetry on hatred, on skin color and on how absurd everything is for the black individual.
The technical assets of the music are outstanding, the flow, the production, the rhymes, everything you can think of this album can give it to you. I can only imagine what could ever be a better rap album than this one.
100/100 as strong as it can get.
Wow. I don't know what I was expecting, but by all means this exceeded my expectations. I can see why it's been named the best album of the decade. It's very nuanced and very well conceived and executed. I definitely need to listen to this again, because I'm sure a lot of things just flew past me because there is so much going on. 10/10 for sure.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
I hear with joy through this album especially the last part was very good. I like the view he has to America and all the Black People. Favorite Songs: Mortal Man, The Blacker The Berry, Wesley´s Theory.
