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 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

this should be called Untitled Underrated, because its an overlooked masterpiece.

Very solid (I mean, this is Kendrick Lamar, so of course it is great) but lacking for real highlights because of obvious reasons. A welcome addition to his discography. — one thing I must add, though: why are so many people in the comments here referring to this album as a b-side compilation/album? Those are not b-sides, they are outtakes.

Really good songs that were cut from To Pimp A Butterfly. For sure worth a listen!

A very strong collection of songs considering these were the B sides for TPAB. I do think it is over rated due to this link with that album but there is still a lot to explore and enjoy. Track 2 and 7 demonstrate this as they have the best beats and wordplay on the album. The whole album in general is pretty consistent in terms of beats. Also, the fusion of jazz and funk with his musical stylings is brilliant on every song. However, it doesn't feel complete and is missing the message and story of other Kendrick albums. It can also be argued that it is forgettable in the grander scheme of his discography and doesn't hold up in terms of quality to his other records. Overall, a lot of enjoyable moments with a great flow to the record makes for a fun experience without fail on this album.

Clearly a B-sides of TPAB, but it worked very well, so why not more. It's easily forgotten though.

even though it's a collection of B-sides it's one of the best albums of the decade.

Some great ideas, it would have been a lot higher if more effort were put in this project.

It's crazy how a compilation of demos from Kendrick is out of this world

This is an incredible album that's not given enough credit because it's a B-sides album. In my opinion this album holds up to other Kendrick releases like TPAB and Good Kid. It doesn't tell a complete and heartfelt story like those two albums do, but it IS an incredibly fun listen, that's great in its own right. Fav tracks 3,5,6,7,and 8
