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 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.5/100, a mean average of 75.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.9.

An enjoyable with some notable killer tracks in Killing Me Softly and Ready or Not. For me, Lauryn Hill is the real shining star with her singing on the tracks previously mentioned and even her rapping on tracks like Zealots outshining her bandmates.

I think the skits and some of the other aspects of the album feel very dated now. The album drags towards the back end.

Only just got this album in Apr 18 and liked it straight away - 5 or 6 listens later and I'm digging it big time. Recall the Singles - which are superb - add Zealots, The Score, The Mask and it deserves a top 100 placing. Great hip hop and interchange between the contributors all complementing each other. Just falls outside my top 100

Incredibly fun album to listen. Kept my attention all the way, everything from the beats, lyrics, and flow that is compelling to listen to this record again soon.

Possibly one of the most influential records in the rap/hip hop genre, and justifiably so. Hill has such a commanding voice.

This is definitely a classic that helped pave the way for Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean. Definitely a good one.

Being age 6 the year of its release, one of the best albums a little me could ever hope to get my hands on. Lauryn Hill commands the world's attention with her voice, and proves so with her success considering what little body of work she has relative to other artists.
