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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Definitely not bad as alt-R&B goes, but most songs are still too slow to really appeal to me.

Love the vibes on this album, perfect for a lazy Sunday at home. Definitely worth repeat listens, and I'm continuing to find different things to love throughout the record.

Favorite tracks: Garden (Say it Like Dat), Prom, Drew Barrymore

SZA's debut is a really good follow-up to her EPs, she mixes a whole bunch of genres.

With personal lyrics and sentimental cuts like "Drew Barrymore" and "20 something" "CTRL" is one of the best albums of 2017.

Best album of 2017 for me. So many great songs on here that all flow together to make a great album.

Reminds me a lot of frank ocean, but less experimental. Still, some pretty good songs, along with some average ones

Sounds good on a first listen. This is currently relatively low on BEAs 2017 list compared to a lot of critic lists. Personally, this is more like what I want to hear on a pop album than Lorde's latest, for example. It feels more expressive and energising to me. Will need to hear a few more times before I rate though.
