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 has a Bayesian average rating of 69.1/100, a mean average of 68.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.7.

Smooth R&B with some surprises (the ambient house, Björk-penned title track for instance). My favourite track is the big middle finger ("Human Nature") to the traditionalists who tried to stall her career during her "Erotica" era. It's quite strong and subdued, and is further evidence that Madonna's best decade was actually the 90s, where her pop gained artistic prowess.
I like this one a lot. The R&B vibes surprisingly suit her really well, and Madonna effortlessly glides over the smooth production. Elsewhere we have convincing pop ballads and even some ambient house-y pop on the very interesting title track, retrospectively a great precursor to 1998's "Ray of Light". I really appreciate Madonna's work throughout the 90s and this solid album is a testament to that opinion.
I am listening to this album right now and this is really good! Mixes a lot of groove and down tempo. Also the title track is on some ambient techno. Wish I heard this sooner.
A beautiful album. Starts off slow and just gets better and better. Spans many genres and also remains humble. Although most people don't want quiet or humble from Madonna that's what she delivered and it worked perfectly. The last two tracks are the best ones, in my opinion.
Madonna's 2nd best album I.M.O. I really like the way the final few tracks blend into each other for the last 22 mins. starting with Forbidden Love - Love Tried To Welcome Me - Sanctuary - Bedtime Story & Live To Tell a fantastic 5 track mini album with Madonna at her best singing about love/sex. The album also contains forgotten gems Survival, Secret and Inside Of Me.
A fine album from Madonna, possibly her best.
Possibly her best album ever, filled with gems, her vocals are to die for. Also the only album where she sounded incredibly current at the time.
Wonderful singles 'Take A Bow' and 'Secret' but a bit weak NON-single material. Among non-single tracks I adore 'Forbidden Love' (should've been a single). 'Survival' and 'Don't Stop' are good though
