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)

Her absolute best. Seeing her evolution from the catchy bubblegum synthpop of her earliest records all the way to Ray of Light is one of the most rewarding artistic evolutions. From Like a Prayer through Bedtimes Stories in particular, Madonna is searching for new sounds and exploring new ideas. They all lead to fascinating places, but none of it is whole. Even when she's leaving it all on the dance floor, there's still something missing.
But not on Ray of Light. The infectious songwriting, the sprawling possibilities, the cheekiness and melodrama that never quite meshed as well as you might want all finally coalesce into the most effortless and triumphant albums you'll ever hear. This is Madonna at the peak of her powers and she doesn't waste a second.
Listen ROL is always a good idea
This is on the low end of the Madonna spectrum for me.
Her finest hour. Overall, 60/100.
Her best album
An unexpected album that once again proved Madonna as the queen of reinvention.
love this album
Favorite Tracks:Drowned World/Substitute For Love, The Power Of Goodbye
Grande acerto de Madonna. Tinha house, misticismo e produção divina.
