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 mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

This album is pretty damn good. Every song is solid and great in it's own right. Obviously 1999 and Little Red Corvette take the cake, but that does not diminish my admiration for tracks like Lady Cab Driver, D.M.S.R., and Let's Pretend We're Married. I think I prefer to Purple Rain, just because there's more to listen to on this one, and more of any Prince (at least the 80s stuff) is pretty amazing in my book.
I think I like this more than Purple Rain. Although, when I play Purple Rain again I may change my mind. What I like about the Prince albums is that everything is slightly different from one album to the next. The fact that I have this on purple vinyl adds to the experience.
This one is where he started throwing the drum machines around your ears, goddamn it's too much.
Lets Remember Prince here DO all the lyrics and music, all by himself

Grande som de Prince, definição do funk nos anos 80's.
Here we are, we've reached Prince's funky saga "1999". The length of the record (and of the tracks) doesn't bother me that much as long as the songs maintain interest throughout their running time, which they all do. The title track is one of my favourite tracks of all time, a six minute masterpiece which should honestly be blasting from speakers when the end of the world is happening. The remaining tracks can't quite live up to the first one, nonetheless there are plenty of impressive compositions here and they all come together to form an interesting tapestry of love, longing, sex and death. His trademark sexual songs appear to have taken on a more uneasy tone however, as if he's entitled to sex from various women whilst sometimes being, you know, quite pervy.. however the ambition of this record cannot be denied. His best so far.
I Think This Was Better than Purple Rain in All Kinds of Possible Ways.
The only bad thing about this album is that there's absolutely no reason for it to be this long. It could have easily been at least 15 minutes shorter. Luckily, the music is so damn good that it more than makes up for it, but I think we could be talking about a serious contender for the "best Prince record" title had it been a little less self-indulgent. Despite that, it's still a fantastic album.
One of the greatest funk albums ever.
