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 has a Bayesian average rating of 69.6/100, a mean average of 68.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.8.

Crammed full of singles, slick production (natch), tight harmonies... but obvs. B’s star shines brightest. For me, the apogee of 90s pop/R&B (only rivalled by TLC’s CrazySexyCool and FanMail), and still an album I take out for a more-than-occasional spin some 20+ years since it first landed.

A few OK tracks and a pair of gems surprisingly late in the album, but, beyond that, you can see why Beyoncé might have wanted to break out of the constraints of a trio.

A really great album. Probably DC's best. Some of the songs get a little repetitive as the vocals take the same path, but overall the lyrics as well as the vocals are superb. But the girls hitting the same high notes and doing backup gets old.
