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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

Miles is always doing something new that was ahead of his time.. Funky. Evidently, this is a further on the same road which began from "Silent Way"..

This is an incredibly funky release from Miles Davis and it is a record that I never thought he would have made. With that being said, I think this album works really well and might be one of his more under rated pieces of music. The first side is brilliant and it flies by every time I listen to it as I get completely lost in the music. The performances are just so good all over this record and the diverse instrumentation really gives you a lot to sink your teeth into. The percussion is fantastic and really maintains the tempo of the record while giving us a unique backdrop for the performers to experiment on top. Obviously the trumpet shines but I also very much like the Bass, saxophones, guitars and keyboards on here. However, this record can get a little repetitive and may not possess the same degree of experimentation that we are treated to on other albums. Also, it could be shortened a little especially the final track which does drag. Overall, an under rated album from Miles Davis and I always have a good time when I play this record.

Amazing how it seems unstructured and repetitious at first, but there is a coherent method to this funky madness. A brilliant album that truly transports the listener right into Miles' intended environment.

I like the funky groove on this thing but the soloing feeling uninspired in comparison to his previous work and can get a bit repetitive. Definitely a very progressive album for its time though and carries on wonderfully from Bitches Brew and In A Silent Way, just could have done with been executed a bit better.

Miles goes straight funk, and man is it funky. A forgotten album which is very underrated.

Hypnotic jazz funk. It's got a streetwise feel to it, or maybe it's just the cover influencing me. It went right past me on first listen, but since then it's grown on me. Some people claim this is Miles Davis' best album, I certainly wouldn't go that far, but it's definitely another piece of the puzzle and that makes it one of Miles' essential recordings.

Hypnotic, it dripped on me on the schoolbus and I watched the men in yellow hats with jackhammers make music.
