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 mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Every song on here is a hit. Not About Love (and its music video) are astounding. I can't believe this isn't considered her masterpiece.

Very good album!!!

O'sailor is my fav song of the record, I love the sedated feeling and sexual tone in her voice.

I think this album is definitely better than Tidal.

I've always been surprised by the low rank of this album since I consider it to be her second best. Then I realized it's because I've been listening to bootleg version of this album all along! *MIND BLOWN* Extraordinary Machine has two versions - the bootleg Jon Brion version and the official Mike Elizondo release. The Brion bootleg is generally celebrated because of its dense production filled with colorful George Martin-esque string arrangements and many people were disappointed when she released instead the Elizondo version which is stripped of those arrangements and has a more somber quality. I would listen to both versions and figure out which one you like better! :D

I'd say this is her weakest album. None of the songs really seem to stand out.

She's aging like fine wine... Gaining complexity and substance with every album... But why do we have to wait 5 years each time?

I agree. The original version is better. If only that would have been completed and mixed...

The original version - the one that was re-mixed and re-released is not as good
