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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

Realmente disfrute escuchar este álbum. Creo que la combinación de hip-hop con el soul queda bastante bien. Tiene un sonido tipo urbano/callejero pero los arreglos de voz le dan una elegancia muy palcentera para el oído.
Cada canción vale la pena pero sin duda las mejores son "Ex-Factor" y "Doo-wop"
I really enjoy listening to this album. I think the combination of hip-hop and soul works quite well. It has an urban/street type sound but the voice arrangements give it a very pleasing elegance to the ear.
Each song is worth it but without a doubt the best are "Ex-Factor" and "Doo-wop"
This is a record that is elongated unnecessarily and this is quite frustrating because when the music is good it is outstanding. For me, there are two very strong runs in the record and that is the first 5 tracks and the last 5 tracks. Both are catchy and are the most effective at mixing the genres she is trying to integrate into her style of music. The opening tracks are the better ones and that is mainly due to my love of the guitar work on To Zion and Ex-Factor. However, that whole middle chunk of the album feels like a waste for me. After listening to this record a lot of times I still have the opinion that you can skip the middle part of the release. It feels slow and uninteresting and wastes a huge chunk of time on this record. Despite this, I am a huge fan of her vocal and both her rapping and singing are brilliant and add so much to the sound. Overall, there are some incredible moments on here but it lacks the consistency to be amongst the greatest records of all time in my opinion.
I've only become acquainted with the album in the last couple of years and regret not listening to it years ago - It did take a while to get my head around this album, both the length and the different styles but I think it's good to great throughout, often brilliant and totally memorable and bravo to Lauryn Hill for sharing her story and message so candidly and articulately. Personal highlights include "Ex-Factor" that is a magical mix of hip hop, 70s soul and gospel, and just when you least expect it there’s a marvelous but way too short guitar solo; "To Zion" with Carlos Santana is moving and intently personal; the lyrics on "Doo Wop (That Thing)" are spiky and memorable; “Everything is Everything” positively rocks as Hill declares “I wrote these words for everyone who struggles in their youth” and later “It seems we lose the game / Before we even start to play / Who Made these Rules?”; “Superstar” is brilliant with a simple but killer bass line and samples juxtaposed against some gorgeous harp and memorable snatches of harpsichord inspired by The Doors masterpiece "Light My Fire" and the final track "Tell Him" - which I believe was added later to the album has Hill singingly beautifully and movingly quoting Corinthians “Now I may have faith to make mountains fall / But if I lack love than I am nothin’ at all”. IMHO this is a super, memorable album.
Can somebody explain me how and why this is top 100 on rolling stone greatest albums jajaja

very cool , very groovie, however i prefered her work together with the Fugees. To bad they split.
The album is mostly able to hit that sweetspot where it doesnt seem to be almost 70 minutes long as you are having a good time with it.
Besides Lauryn's voice could probably rap about oreos for 70 minutes and it would sound delightful...

Insane album. To Zion is one of my favorite songs ever
There's a lot that's undeniable here, but part of what's undeniable is that there is some very real meandering.
