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 80.0/100, a mean average of 79.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

Beautiful voice, very enjoyable soul.
As unique a voice as we have ever been graced with.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T spells superstardom
They aren't all the greatest songs, but the expert delivery can make you forget all about that.
Some of the best vocals that I've ever heard. The album is consistent in that Aretha sings her ass off on every song. Her voice is so powerful that you can hear the microphone losing it on the title track.
Awesome album. Aretha is such an amazing singer.
Favorites: Respect, I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You), Do Right Woman - Do Right Man.
A super album by a super lady. The very best of the genre.
There's just nobody quite like Aretha, and I suppose there never will be. Her considerable talent is on full display here.
Marco do r&b, Aretha não cantava pop, não era uma das Supremes, era um mulher com raiva, amor e imensa voz.
The best compliment I can give this almost perfect album is that it plays like a Best Of Album & I have to remind myself its 'just' an album ...but man what an album it is !
Interestingly this was Aretha's studio album number 11 and would be one of 3 albums she would release in 1967
Also interesting to note is this album contains no less than 5 cover versions -
(i) "Respect": originally recorded by Ottis Reading from a male perspective , Aretha's interpretation would be from an assertive Female perspective + she added in the
R-E-S-P-E-C-T part whilst her sisters on backing vocals added in the "sock it to me , sock it to me ..." section
(ii) "I'll Drown in My Own Tears": best known as a 1965 Ray Charles single
(iii) "Soul Serenade": originally a jazz song appearing on a 1964 King Curtis album
(iv) "Good Times": Sam Cooke 1964
(v) "A Change Is Gonna Come": Sam Cooke 1964 written in angry response to his being turned away from an all white Motel & fully inspired by Dylan's "Blowin in the Wind"
Not a single weak track , not a note out of place + THAT voice
