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 77.2/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

Another solid track list that plays to Ms. Franklin's many strengths, with a great Elton cover and an obscure small-town Indiana reference to boot.

First half is pretty good, but after 'brand new me' it gets a little less interesting. Nonetheless does Aretha what Aretha does, sing amazingly.

Ms. Franklin bravely covers some songs on this record that would intimidate others at the time. She makes them her own with great production and arrangements.
