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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.4.

I was a little disappointed with it after my first listen, but by listen number three or so my mind was simply blown. This album takes everything that made Michael Kiwanuka's first two albums great and compounds them. From the excellent lyrics to the irresistible sound that flows so effortlessly through the record to the gorgeous buttery tone of his voice, the whole thing is a near perfect feat. I would say this is likely the album of 2019.

Easily one of the of the most creative, exciting albums this year. Though I had heard a few song by Michael Kiwanuka before (cold little heart, love & hate) this was the first time I listened to one of his albums all the way through. Not only was I extremely inpressed but it also made me want to listen to the rest of his work too. Right now, this is my favorite of his projects and one of my favorite albums from this year. I'd love to see this get more recognition!

Just in time before the end of the decade, Michael Kiwanuka provides us with one of the most culturally aware records that we've been gifted. No doubt the message may take a few listens to permeate but when it does you really begin to understand just how important this album will be for years to come. The blend of psych and blues is a difficult task to perfect in this era, but in this album Kiwanuka at least makes it his own. Just like many other great albums of times past, I think this will be one that we look back on and appreciate the fearlessness to address topics of tense societal conflicts within the framework of cross-generational genres.

A pretty good and consistent record, but Hard To Say Goodbye is a clear standout, what a song
