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 79.6/100, a mean average of 79.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

It’s a jazz album with many repeating themes. It won’t be for everyone but I can guarantee it won’t be the worst jazz music you’ve ever heard.

In General, I am more of a maximalist than a minimalist, but “Promises” is a compelling counter argument. The whole album is made of quiet moments and subtle changes. The saxophone pairs so serenely with the light electronics. The constant motif pulls the listener in making even the smallest change feel profound. This gently pushes the listener forward creating one cohesive journey through the entire album. The louder moments on “Movement 7” and “Movement 8” don’t carry the majesty but ruin the album by any means. “Promises” is a truly complete piece.

This record almost made me cry the first time I listened to it. Just phenomenal. Also holds together as a cohesive unit better than almost anything I have heard before. Instant classic!

AOTY for 2021. Honestly transformational and somehow still sounding futuristic and inventive. May this be the future of Third Stream!!!!!!

A beautifully minimal jazz album that took my spirit on a journey. Feels like slowly waking up from a pleasant dream.

A wonderful record. Very surprised by it's high ranking here on this site. So many better ones not getting any attention at all. This is the 'spiritual' side of Jazz, and if you like this one. Check out Alice Coltranes 'Ptah, the el Daoud' or Sun Ra's majestic 'Lanquidity', and of course Pharoah's 'Karma' or 'Pharoah'

Transcendent listening experience that takes the listener on a journey of liminality. Each movement seamlessly flows into and morphs with each other creating a whole that foreshadows and recalls itself. It insists questions of meaning upon the listener.
