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 79.4/100, a mean average of 78.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

The voice and personality of Winehouse is extraordinary. But the production is what really makes this album a classic.
It's not an easy feat to make a classic style sound contemporary and fresh.
If Winehouse had lived today, I would have loved to hear her on a Sault album, since they do something similar productionwise.

Take an old jazz standard. Ella Fitzgerald, maybe. Then add a filthy mouth and a broken soul and you get this modern masterpiece. Compelling from start to finish.

The musicianship is stellar and the songwriting is crisp.

I have scored this up since first listen - I quite liked the singles at the time and homage to that 50's/60's sound. Over the years I have come to appreciate it more

La diva, peut être trop… Tristement rentré dans le club des 27. Une voix atypique comme il n'y a en avait pas eu depuis longtemps. Quelle artiste, quel dommage :-(

I was slow to get Winehouse. I didn't warm to her first album, Frank (2003) as it was rather old school jazz ballads, so I wasn't compelled to engage with anything from her second album as it appeared the same old, same old. And I felt confirmed that she was being over-hyped when she and Mick Ronson covered the Zuton's excellent "Valerie" with their own over-slick, superficial version: "Valerie". But over time, particularly seeing her perform live on TV, I could see that there was something very special about this singer. This album is very different to the jazzy debut. This incorporates soul and RnB - blending Motown, Sixties girl groups, and modern RnB with smoky jazz ballad vocals. The lyrics are brutal, vulnerable, honest, and so universal. This is not some tin pan alley falsely writing about falling in and out of love, this is a women writing about a very real and hurting relationship, and it's devastating impact on her. This album could never have been made if Winehouse had never met her Blake and had a stormy relationship while drinking, loving and listening to the Sixties juke box in the Hawley Arms in Camden. She was emotionally involved and somewhat disturbed, and everything that was was - her vulnerability, her brass, her intelligence, her tenderness, and her desire to be loved came out in the album.

Bringing this R&B/Soul/Pop sound into the spotlight and making it accessible to a wider audience is quite an achievement. And what to say about the voice? Excellent.
