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 80.4/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

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.

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
and
(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

Timeless

Per me uno dei due maggiori classici della musica soul ( l'altro è "Otis blue" di Otis Redding ). Ottima la scelta delle canzoni, "Respect" su tutte, impeccabili produzione ed arrangiamenti ma soprattutto a fare la differenza è la sua voce, la sua interpretazione.

This is thee soul album of the 60's head & shoulders above everything else Aretha did or any solo artist in the 60's. She along with Nina Simone have voices that transcend time you know within 3 secs. of hearing her voice "that's Aretha". Every track here is brilliant Respect, the title track, Dr. Feelgood, Do Right Woman & a brilliant version of A Change Is Gonna Come stand out but this is just a superb RnB/soul album.

Alicia Keys, one of the most instantly recognizable voices of modern soul and blues, has said that she considers someone without an Aretha Franklin album only half a person. And if there is one Aretha album to own, this is the one. Obviously you know Aretha's iconic cover to Otis Redding's "Respect," a version that so eclipses the original that, even though it was written by a dude, has become synonymous with female empowerment. As for me, I love Aretha's originals on this record, especially "Dr. Feelgood," a slow, smoldering cocktail blues, the sort of thing you might expect as a the soundtrack for a sexy cinematic scene, provided the director has an impeccable sense of soul.

One of the most perfect soul records ever made. INLAMLILY, is probably Aretha Franklin's best LP, full of great songs and Aretha at her peak as a vocalist. Great songs include, son of a preacher man, respect, do right woman-do right man. Essential stuff.
