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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.4/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

Coming back to say this is one of my favorite albums ever now. The first half is a masterpiece.

New favorite Death Grips album. The Money Store is great, but it's a bit indigestible for me. The Powers That B is consistently entertaining, both NOTM and Jenny Death. I will agree with the general consensus and say I prefer Jenny Death, I wouldn't discount the first half though. I was very pleasantly surprised by this album, considering the reviews I'd seen.

For my money, this Death Grips most consistent album that I've heard which is quite something given that it's their longest as well. It's also their least accessible but after listening 7 or 8 times, I enjoy the entire album front to back now. It's a grower like most DG albums. There is more energy on this album than most bands have put out in their entire careers and there is almost nobody that can put out a release this original. The Bjork vocals alone are enough to make this album unique but add Ride's dynamic flow that reaches a full cry of bloody murder at points and the indiscernible combination of percussion and other sounds and instruments and you have something that nobody has ever heard before. I love the absolute chaos of the first disc and prefer it to the second. I really like every song but "Voila" and "Inanimate Sensation" are my favorites. "Fuck Me Out" is the only song that I have a hard time appreciating but even it has its moments.

The first half of the Jenny Death double album was better in some ways, but I definitely dug the diversity of sounds on this half. It’s somehow more of a “party” album.

Best track: Inanimate Sensation. The closest thing to a “hit” they’ll ever have.

Death Grips starting to incorporate rock in their unusual sound. It results in a good finale with "On GP".

Niggas on the Moon: Decent 7/10
Jenny Death: Light 9/10

Overall: Strong 8/10

I actually believe Jenny Death is DG's strongest release to date but Niggas on the Moon their weakest. So it's pretty hard for me to rate this album but I'll stick with this.

There are few things in life better then a double album where you can't decide which half is better.

Best tracks: Inanimate Sensations and On GP
