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 77.7/100, a mean average of 75.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.0.

R & B / soul music has always been some kind of blindspot for me. I know that hip hop music in generall does share ties with these genres, but here it is overwhelming, it feels more R & B / soul than hip hop. The fact that it is 77 minutes long if you include the hidden tracks doesn't make it exactly accessible. On the other hand, even though I've always found it difficult to relate to songs/albums that are narrated from a female perspective, she overcomes this difficulty rather convincingly, or at least better than most. One contributing factor is that the themes she deals with here are universal (love for music, love for God, love in a romantic relationship), but mostly it has to do with her performance. Her singing is even more impressing than her rapping. You'd be hard pressed to find a better vocalist and the production is aimed to further showcasing her amazing skills. Apart from the technical aspects, she is so passionate, I think most listeners would find it easy to connect with her on an emotional level. I consider this the main reason for the both mainstream and underground appeal of this album. Especially the stretch of the 4 songs right after the intro is beyond words, absolutely classic stuff. The classroom parts were also enjoyable and they did serve a purpose.

There's a lot that's undeniable here, but part of what's undeniable is that there is some very real meandering.

Grandioso álbum! Expõe o íntimo de Lauryn e de toda a comunidade negra. Apenas um grande talento como o dela transforma um álbum em um manifesto.

Well damn. That was amazing. Rarely do I like an album this much on first listen, especially one in a genre I'm so unfamiliar with.

Incredible. This record by the hugely talented Lauryn Hill stands as one of the greatest albums of the 90s... a delectable blend of hip-hop, R&B and soul with insightful lyrics and a passionate, flawless delivery. A timeless piece of art to be treasured.
