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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 1% of artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 87.3/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 20.6.

I wonder just how much BEA will blow up when Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead release a full length album in the same year.

One of the most promising and likable rappers of this decade, with dope lyricism and sick beat-choices. With that said, this site (along with RYM) overrates him. TPAB, now being higher ranked than classics, superior to that, is ridiculous.

s80 - good
gkmc - classic
tpab - excellent
uu - excellent
DAMN - bad

Kendrick took 2 albums to accomplish what Kanye took 5, Eminem took 3, Jay-Z took 6 and Pac and Biggie took their unfortunately short but entire discography(alive) to achieve. Not saying Kendrick's better or worse than any of the aforementioned artists, that's not my point. What I'm saying is he's just stepped into his career and is already in the same conversation as the GOAT MC's and regardless of whether you like his art or not, you've GOT TO respect that.

So promising and so talented. Such an intellectual. I started listening with the release of Damn and went back to try more stuff. Really makes you think and listen over and over to get a hang of what you're experiencing.

Very promising artist, haven't heard a bad album from him yet. He is on a hot streak with GKMC, TPAB and DAMN and I hope he will be able to continue with his next album. He is already accomplished so much in his carreer I feel like if he keep going he might shoot for the GOAT status in the next few years. Already in my top 10 hip hop artist of all time.

If he keeps it up he will be my favorite artist of all time, from any genre. He's already my favorite rapper of all time.
