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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.1/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.0.

Easily MJ's best album.
Hands down one of my favourite of Michael Jackson albums. The album is fire and magical. Very black and groovy, really MJ was happy doing this album like Thriller. From the black groovy song Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough to the slow song She’s Out Of My Life. Off The Wall needs more love because really it’s underrated in the MJ fandom. It’s a groovy kind of album perfect for a Disco or party unlike his later albums mainly History and Invincible doesn’t have dance songs or groovy songs not even Scream or 2Bad or You Rock My World count. The songs are fire, the videos are amazing, She’s Out Of My Life filmed on one take, Rock With You and the sparkly outfit and Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough and the dancing. Very iconic album one of his best musically along with Thriller.
Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough is a iconic tune. Very black disco song, perfect for a party and disco and the video was fire. Never will I get tired of the song or video ever. Iconic tune 10/10
Rock With You is another iconic song. The song has a nice feeling and you could feel how happy he was and it’s so groovy. A classic R&B/Disco song, perfect for a party and the video is fire, with a little dancing, outfit and singing. 10/10
Workin Day N Night is a banger. That tune has a groovy beat in it, and you could tell he had a lot of fun doing his song, very classic never aged. 10/10
Get On The Floor a cool song. Even though I haven’t listen to it that much it’s catchy and worth to listen to it. Nice tune and the best is amazing. 8/10
Off The Wall another iconic song. The song is fun, fun to sing to, fun to dance to. This song has a nice R&B/Disco vibe to it. 10/10
She’s Out Of My Life is classic. It’s so underrated it needs love. The video is always left off when it comes to Michael Jackson videos, it’s amazing, filmed in one take, the Curl and jumper with the purple shirt in it is iconic. Looks like a gentleman, he was, so yeah. The song is a nice Soul song, he put his heart out to it even though he was sad when he sang it. 10/10
Girlfriend iconic one. The song has a nice R&B/Soul feeling, he sounds so happy, it’s just a banger. Needs more love cause that song is amazing. Wonderful and soulful. 9/10
I Cant Help It is a classic tune. Timeless tune, nice R&B/Soul vibe, never gets old this song needs more love. Looks like he had fun doing. He seems very happy in this album as well as he was in Thriller which he hardly was in his later albums. People need to give this song more love and appreciation, it’s a masterpiece.10/10
It’s The Fallin In Love classic one. This song is catchy although I didn’t listen to it for a while, it’s worth to sing it also to dance along to it. 9/10
Burn This Disco Out is amazing. Groovy tune, worth to dance to and got a Disco vibe to it, it’s so awesome for a party, you all need to give this song more love, he sounds so happy in it, very black R&B. 9/10
The first masterpiece of Michael Jackson. It’s a consistant album that established him as an artist with astonishing talent.
Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough and Rock With You are still among the most acclaimed songs of all time.
But the whole album is cohesive, even my 2 least favourites ‘Girlfriend’ and ‘Burn This Disco Out’.
He proved 3 years later that he could top it. 9.5/10
A decent foreshadowing of the solo heights that were to come a few years later.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
This is where he started to show his greatness as a solo artist. Rating (84.00)
Michael Jackson without the anchor of fame around his ankle yet, showing his talent and having fun.
This isn't my go to album or even Artist or genre - but I gave it a listen because you need to expand your musical tastes and knowledge.
There are two knock out tracks for me - Don't Stop Till You Get Enough which I would happily dance to all day; and completely different the love ballad of She's Out Of My Life.
There is nothing bad on this album but most of the rest doesn't land for me personally - although I can't really be bothered with Girlfriend which I note was written by Paul McCartney - it is just so safe and middle of the road.
Overall it is worth a listen although I think Thriller has better and tighter tracks than here
