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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

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
