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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 1% of tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a mean average rating of 86.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 87.4/100. The standard deviation for this track is 11.7.

I wish that intro beat was used for a whole song, its a really cool beat. Its awesome that he samples Age of Adz (sooo underappreciated) but I don't think it was used too well. And the Boo Boo is kinda annoying

This is my least favorite track on TPAB but I have warmed up to him a bit. I actually am not too against the Sufjan sample, but I think it could have been less repetitive. This is just one of the kendrick voices I don't care for, and the "boo boo" upsets me. The Obama say, "What it do?" moment is worth a laugh the first few times listening to it. Love the Killer Mike shoutout!

My least favorite track, but it samples Age of Adz which just gives me joy.

I love the intro, the rest of the song is really dark though, in a good way though.

Since I heard this song I can't stop yelling "BOO BOO" at everything I don't like.

This is probably my least favorite track on the album. It's too much of a caricature.
