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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

I'm a fan, but this is Ms. Holiday late in her career, drowning in melancholy.

Although I'm not as in love with this record as many here, I do find this a rich record from an aging singer filled with emotion, life experience and reflection. Billie's raw voice is past her prime but is drenched with the knowing heartache that comes with surviving life. While it doesn't wow me with perfect pitch or articulation, it does leave me respectful of her life and her artistry. It's a singer giving her best at the end, and that's still very good.

Best tracks: You Don't Know What Love Is, The End of a Love Affair.

Her voice is heartbreaking and very very touching and strong... an album to listen to in a melancholic afternoon.

Fine ballad based suite. Ray Ellis and his orchestra made a superior batch of musical arrangements. As mentioned previously Billie's voice was shot after years of hard living and sadly not long for this world. Something of a triumph that this record even exists.
