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 mean average rating of 87.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 89.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

Fav. tracks: For Free? (Interlude), King Kunta, These Walls, i, Mortal Man.
I called it when it came out. I dunno when it happened cause I haven't been around for a while, but I knew this would become the #1 of the decade.
And it wholly deserves it.

Growing up I wasn't into hip-hop or rap music. I was impressed by their skill to throw words out there, but couldn't appreciate the musical aspects of the composition. It became something I could hear at parties when I was in my 20's. but it wasn't until I was introduced to electronic music when I understood what was happening with some of the best MCs.
And then this album came out: I was so impressed by absolutely everything that happens there. A lot of the songs feel like 3 or 4 poetical effects clashing together in harmony, The Blacker the Berry is an excellent example of it. The album is going up into the charts and it is well deserved.
Best album of 2010's by far and one of the best of all time. I have no doubt about it.
Favorite Tracks: King Kunta, U, The Blacker The Berry
To Pimp A Butterfly is Kendrick's beautiful exploration of himself and his role in society. The lyricism is of the highest caliber and detail is woven into every moment. "King Kunta" is as great of a song you can ask for with its marching beat and layered messaging. The two criticisms I have of the album are of its narrative and some of tracks staying power. The narrative is a bit more muddled than that of good kid, m.A.A.D City. I also do feel a bit of a lull in track quality in the middle and B side of the album. Despite this the album never gets bad and remains one of the most unique releases of the decade.
