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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.0/100, a mean average of 72.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.2.

This is one of those albums that'll get more credit the longer it's around.
Out of his more experimental albums Life Of Pablo is by far the best. It's got loads of those beat-less moments that are particularly fashionable in hiphop at the moment but Kanye pulls it off better than anyone.
All of these tracks compliment each other so well, I find it much more enjoyable to listen to the whole thing as an album rather than skipping between tracks, which probably why it hasn't had the credit it deserves. Not many people listen to whole albums these days.
The only weakness this record has is the lyricism is not amazing. Although I'd say everything post My Beautiful Twisted... has the same problem.
If your a production and album format fan this record is one of, if not the best of Kanye's work. The production and arrangements are superb, sounding brand new, cutting edge but soulful and human at the same time.
Kanye fans really be eating this shit up lol.
Wack lyrics and lots of filler
This is his third best album to date, really like it and it reminded his best days.
When TLOP first came out on tidal, it was so much rougher. I wish more people would give this another go.
"The Life of Pablo" is not a revolution in Kanye West's discography: there was one with "808", of course, then another with the radical industrialist "Yeezus". "The Life of Pablo" is a culmination of the styles worked in the previous 3 solo albums, with new influences on themes: the birth of the girl, the death of the mother and the promotion of family life. Finally, "family", in the case of West and Kardashian, is a "public" life: people will talk more about the star than music for the release of this album. West's personality is what it is, either we hate or we love, but Kanye is a great artist. Kanye West delivers an extraordinary album, where mistake are rare and where there are a lot of great songs. In addition, Kanye can constantly finalize and improve the album, which is a pretty good idea. Regarding his egocentric trip ("I Love Kanye"), is it surprising? No. Can we override and enjoy the music of a genius who reinventing himself with each album? Yes. Hallelujah!
Best track: "Ultralight Beam"
Kanye released something interesting here and while it may not be his best work, it's a worthwhile listen.
Pretty slow start — aside from Ultralight beam of course — but the last four songs are fantastic
This album is IN-SANE!!! I get it now. I finally get it. This thing is incredible. I wish this album was a hat so I could wear it and have it warm my cold head. I wish this album was weed so I could smoke it. It might as well be drugs because it gets me high as a cloud, man.
Underrated. Top 5 of 2016 for sure.
Beautiful, not besides it's flaws, but, because of it's flaws
