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 80.4/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

Really good album. Not near the Whats Going On, but still a fun listen.
One of Marvin's finest, in my honest opinion it can go toe to toe with What's Going On. Title track is awesome and also Distant Lover has that magic, overall very consistent soulful album.
sexy, smooth, soulful genius
This is one of the sexiest albums I've ever listened to. Beyond the great music and Gaye's sensual delivery and the great marriage of soul and funk, I'd highly recommend putting this album on late at night when you're with your special lady or man.
A tale of two sides and side A, where Gaye had some consistent songwriting help, is the clear powerhouse here.
When an artist has a practically flawless album, there's a tendency that the rest of his discography gets overlooked. That's pretty much what 's going on (pun intended, sorry for this) between me and Marvin (not a fan of addressing an artist with his first name only, but Marvin has always seemed to me so accessible, so relatable, just a lovely figure). His performance is once again of the highest standard, his passion could move mountains. Also, the tracks flow so smoothly from one to the next, it feels more like one big song, nothing stands out neither in a positive nor in a negative manner. Still, I can't help thinking this is a distant second behind his masterpiece. Maybe I'm not a romantic guy after all, but hearing him sing about love is not even half as captivating as the powerful and universal statement of his magnum opus.
Call me crazy, but I actually prefer this to What's Going On.
I could listen to Distant Lover on repeat all night....and have done!
This is actually my favourite Marvin album. Sexy and cool as fuck.
A severely underrated album. "Please Stay" an extremely underrated song. So much soul here. Marvin's voice was unlike any other and the funk brothers could lay it down.
