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 51.1/100, a mean average of 44.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 44.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 24.2.

I have no nostalgia for this having not been even born at the time of its release. i'm sure there are singles on this album that people like or love but as a album listening experience, its very boring... just a real pain to listen to.

When I was a boy, it was required that you hate this bad. As a result, I can't say my opinion is overly unbiased. I guess if I hate them, it's because I was trained. I will say this - there are MUCH worse albums out there.

Thank you Maurice Starr for bringing us both New Edition and New Kids On The Block. What would the world do (in the late 80s) without these groups of boys vocally prancing atop bubblegum pop looking all cute and cuddly and totally awesome?! As saccharine sweet as this album is, i cannot resist "the right stuff" and "hangin' tough" when i'm revisting my grade school, giddy school girl days. Don't let most/all of the album fool you -- these guys are ROUGH!
