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 2% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 83.2/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.2/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 16.3.

The Low End Theory is obviously one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. Midnight Marauders though is equally a great classic and Beats Rhymes & Life may be a little darker than previous albums but still great. At the top of their game, very few can match with them.

Low End Theory isn't the only one to listen to. Midnight Marauders is a gem as well, and PITATPOR is decent as well. Their compilations are great, but these guys weren't a one-album wonder. An absolute titan of hip-hop, who took sampling, beats, and lyrics in a new direction. A wonderful foil for G-Funk.

How in the world has Low End Theory been overlooked until I came along and added it to the database? It's only the greatest hip hop album of the 90s...
