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 78.9/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

As always great voice and I especially like more upbeat tracks like my favorite here: Chain Of Fools.

Some of her best, and therefore some of the overall best vocal performances ever but also some just decent covers.

One of the best voices in recorded music history, paired with great instrumentation and fantastic songs. What's not to like? Highlights: Chain of Fools, You Make Me Feel, People Get Ready, Good to Me As I've Been to You.

Questo non può essere il miglior disco di Aretha Franklin solamente perché la vetta era già stata raggiunta ed in maniera inequivocabile l'anno precedente.
