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 79.0/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

I like this album quite a bit. Cabral's vocals range from good to awesome, and the instrumentation is often pretty great with some nice orchestral and jazzy sections, but the album also gets dark and broody at points too. Probably an unpopular opinion, but I really can't stand Magic Act, mainly due to the guitar solo, which, to me, falls short of virtuosic and has such a harsh tone.

“The Turning Wheel” appears to have all the necessary parts of a successful art pop album. Spelling sings in a flighty and unique tone. The song topics are diverse and clearly of extreme personal importance. A song about a penguin, “Emperor With An Egg”, is put right before a 7 minute track grappling with emotions from being bullied, “Boys At School”. The instrumentation is smooth blend of strings, horns, and synths. Beside all of these ingredients, the album feels a bit flat. Each track will introduce a topic and linger in the same feeling. There is no explosion of sounds or surge of vocals to bring it to the next level. Tracks come and go with the same lukewarm energy level. “The Turning Wheel” has strong concepts, they just need to be harnessed with greater force.

If this album was just the first 7 tracks, it would be album of the decade material. Sadly, the last 5 tracks are incredibly dull.

Chrystia Caberal AKA Spellling (three L’s) has released an ambitious album that covers vast music territory. The obvious first touch point is the Beatlesque album highlight “Turning Wheel” followed by Janelle Monae’s futuristic masterpiece “The ArchAndroid” infused throughout. Solid enough with some genuine highlights but at 57 minutes probably could have been trimmed by a track or two

Creative and original album that sounds something like theatre-pop-rock. Very intricately crafted with a wide variety of different sounds. I can't put my finger on it but it comes off as a little too niche for me. I love the penguin song but ultimately, the album as a whole doesn't blow me away.

Great album with incredible vocals. All the songs are good but somehow nothing really caught my attention as a standout track.

Couldn't get on board with her vocal. I found it too distracting. Not for me.

I can appreciate it and I enjoyed it, but this type of pop does not appeal to me at all.
