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 80.5/100, a mean average of 79.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

While the concept portion of the album is a bit vague above all the album funks.

Funk at it´s best, the only downside is the mixing and mastering on CD, but it must sound amazing on vinyl.

The bass on this thing is insane. So big, fat, loud and funky. This whole album is extremely funky.

Criminally underrated album on this website. From my observation, most Besteveralbum members don't know much about the funk.

Belongs to a select few albums that define what Funk is all about.

I was first introduced to Parliament a year after I graduated from college by a girl who put "P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)" and "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)" on a mix tape for me. It was only then that I discovered how badly I had always wanted to improve my intergalactic funksmanship. And that that was a thing. George Clinton's place in the world of music is all his own--the most bizarre combination of seventies funk and space-age psychedelia, hilarious self-promotion, and an unapologetically playful and self-deprecating take on blackness. This album never fails to make me smile.
